Rit Dye on Sweaters

I have a black sweater that’s a bit faded from being in my car. I wanted to dye it black so that it doesn’t look faded anymore. It’s 88/12 cotton and nylon. Can I use RIT dye for this? Their website said blends will tint evenly but not achieve full color? Thanks.

Dear Crystal,
Rit is not a very dark, saturated dye, and black is hard to get in any circumstance. You can try over dyeing it in the washer with the reactive dye Black 250 from www.dharmatrading.com. Read and follow instructions carefully.
