Hoping to get some advice on dyeing. What colour or combination of colours should I use to slightly change the colour of the overshirt in the following image (front of the picture): https://imgur.com/a/n9I4nx0

I've decided its way too bright red / a bit orangey - sort of lifeguard coloured!

Looking to make it a bit darker and more cinnamon / bruned orange like the jumper behind it in the picture. I'd like to use machine dyes. From your Jacquard's iDye range it doesn't look like they have something directly the colour I want. Can you mix two colours?

Thanks! NevyNev

You want to use either bright blue or turquoise. You need like 1/10 or maybe even 1/20 the amount of dye normally in the packet. Bets thing to do is predissolve in a separate container and pour 1/10 of that liquid into the machine after it is full. It's harder in a front loader, but you can pour it in and then add the clothes and hit start.
