I have some wool that I dyed black using food coloring. When I did it, it was black. After being heated & dried, the black looks more like brown. I think I accidentally "broke black".
Anyone familiar with this?
What can I do to get BLACK?
I read somewhere that I should use less vinegar, but I wanted to know if that worked for any of you guys before? I also read that I should buy gray yarn & use that, but I want to try to salvage this mistake.
I want to dye over it, but don't know what to do to make it work. If it's not possible, what others colors work when dyeing over brown?
