Tea Dyeing a Dress Scarf

Hi Jennifer, My name is Maureen, and I’m newly married. My mother in law crocheted us a dresser scarf with our last name on it in white. I would like it to be beige. I would like to tea dye it, using the sink or a pan since it is not that big. Any suggestions?? You know how much trouble I’ll be in if I ruin it. Thanks in advance, Maureen

it all depends on the fiber content of the scarf. If it is acrylic (which most yarns are these days), it can’t be dyed. Please read my article on Fabric Dyeing 101 for more info. Search at www.askjeeves.com for information on tea dyeing. Write back if you have more questions!
