Need answers about dying wool
I am almost finished knitting a wool shawl. I have read about dying yarn prior to use with kool-aid or cake decorating color, but not dying the finished item. Has anyone here dyed a finished garment as large as a shawl after knitting? If done this way, wil the color be balanced throughout or mottled?
The shawl is made from natural wool. It isn't an ugly color, but I'm thinking I might enjoy it more if it was colored.
Also, if I decide that I want it a lighter natural shade instead of a dyed color, how do I go about lightening the color. I know bleach can not be used becasue it will eat up/melt the fiber.
Any help is appreciated.
