The Best Way To Dye White Curtains To Ecru Color

curtainsI bought some ecru lace curtains in France. My cousin sent me an extra piece (since I didn’t buy enough), but she sent me white lace. What’s the best way to dye the white to ecru? I heard that I could possibly use tea? Thanks.

Dear Danielle,
Please look over my article Fabric Dyeing 101 before you proceed. There is a bunch of info there that will assist you. The main factor is the fiber content of the lace. Also, it will be hard to get the exact ecru that you want, because matching is difficult. Keep in mind, too, that tea is basically brown. No cream or yellow at all.
You may have to start over and order some lace in the correct color, or else go to mix-and-match decor.
