Getting Ivory from Ecru
  • I am trying to dye a dingy white comforter that is otherwise in great shape, ivory. If I used a single packet of Ecru iDye do you think I would get into the ivory neighborhood or would it be too dark?
  • Advising as to specific colors is always a bit of a gamble as we all have our own ideas of what a color is.
    However, using the definitions found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shades_of_white, as a starting point, and shooting for an ivory the use of a very dilute shade of Ecru may very well work. You might want to consider using less than the full packet as it is always easier to over dye as opposed to removing color.

    Hope this helps,
