Dyeing Large Garments

garmentsI was able to pick up a new king sized, white cotton “candle wicking” style bedspread and shams for $55.00, while the same thing in the “natural” color was over $300.00. I would prefer a more natural aged look. I only have access to a front loading washing machine, is it possible to dye something this large successfully in my bath tub? Thanks for any suggestions! Gavin

Hi Gavin,
well, it all depends on how even you want the color to come out. The thing about washing machine dyeing is that the agitation distributes the dye evenly – IF you have enough water and space around the fabric.
You can also send it to Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com. She can get it a great, even color.
