Acid Dye colors, wool dying
  • I am new here and a first time dyer.

    I am in the process of LWI dying right now in the washing machine. I am doing the Pink and realize it is way to rasberry pink for me and am wondering how do I get it too look lighter/softer pink for the next time? Do I just do way less dye? Do people mix colors to achieve a color?
    TIA!

  • How are you doing LWI in the washing machine? Or are you just washing out in the machine, after doing the LWI dyeing in a smaller container?

    To get a paler pink, you use less dye. For a pale pastel, try using one-tenth as much dye powder as you would use for a medium-to-dark color.
