I have a 9 x 12 wool rug that was once a deep red that has faded from the sun. I would like to use your color fast dyes to revitalize it. Any suggestions or information would help!

Celia, I have looked over the pages you gave me and they all seem to discuss immersion dying or washing machine dying. The rug I want to dye is 9 x 12 feet! It is wool and has been faded in large areas from the sun. Could I wash the rug with a commercial rug machine and lay it outside and sponge the dye solution on? I'm not sure what technique to follow. Any help or guidance would be helpful. It is a red rug and I wanted to use the scarlet procion dye. I'm also not sure how much dye to use. This seems like a large undertaking and I want to make sure it is doable. Thanks for any input. Peggy

Hi
As you won’t be able to fix or set the dyes I think you may be better using Dye-na-Flow it is our flowable acrylic color... here is a link. You and add our airfix to it in order to make it permanent. [url]http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/paints/dyenaflow/[/url]
