Restoring Color From Sun Damage

Hi Jennifer
I have purchased a patio umbrella that is hunter green, but the top is terribly faded from the sun. Is there any way that I can dye that fabric? I read in one of your previous questions that fabric dying is a water-based process and my only fear is a rainstorm. Do you have any suggestions? The umbrella is in great shape, other than the fading.
Thanks! Barb

Dear Barb,
This kind of outdoor fabric is difficult to dye, since it is mostly synthetic and designed to be water repellent. You can consult with Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com and see what she says, but the answer is probably No.
