How can I dye a wool sweater?


Answer by  pancakequeen (127)

Since most commercial dyes available in the discount store are hot-water soluble, it is not advised to use one for a wool sweater.

You can dye a wool sweater right in your washing machine. Make sure you don't add detergent and choose a gentle cycle. Don't put it through the spin.

First of all you shouldn't get a wool sweater wet. It will shrink up. If you want to dye it see a professional dry cleaner for help.

Wool only shrinks if it is put in HOT water. Otherwise all sheep wouldn't be able to get wet!! Handwashing woollens in warm water with a woollen detergent is what you do.  add a comment

Heat the dye in a large pot and let cool. Put the wool sweater in and stir around until the sweater looks saturated.
