I'v never tried dying wool before, but I found this great brownish/greenish wool jacket at Old Navy last weekend.
turns out it's more brown than I though, but I swear it looked greenish in the store when I bought it.
Anyways, curious if anyone has dyed wool before with a decent turnout. Looking to dye this more green to get at least a hint more of green look to it.
Its a collared zip up jacket, in a style much like Cyclops wears in X1- Train station sceen.
Originally, I was planning on doing this costume for halloween, but never got around to it (kid came first) and couldn't find a decent jacket at the time either... Seemed like they were out there before, but just my luck, not available when you need one.
anyways. Needs some slight mods to it. 2 "captains" loops at the shoulders on top, 2 side pieces near the waist, and 2 front pockets. Easy enough to modify to look good, but I don't want to go thru the hassles if I can't dye it more greenish to begin with.
any pointers out there, or should I return it and keep looking for something else.
