I recently purchased a white cotton sofa slip cover and want to dye it pale grey using iDye. The only grey available looks too dark. Would I add less dye or soak for a shorter period of time to get desired light grey? Also, any tips to prevent blotching when using one large piece of fabric like the slipcover?
Thank you!

Hi there,

You'll want to use less of the dye to achieve a paler version of the color. I'd start with 1/4 of the dye recommended for 3 pounds of dry fabric.
To avoid blotching make sure your container is large enough to allow the fabric to move freely and stir, stir, stir. It also helps to pick the fabric up and move it around some, along with the stirring.
