Help dying sun-faded afghan.

Recommended Posts

I have a very ornate and sentimental afghan that has been sun faded on it's lower portion in such a way that now it is very obviously mis-matched. I've searched the forums about dying yarns but haven't found anything about dying already-made items. I'm looking for advice from the experts here on this site to help me get the afghan all one color again. I like to display the afghan on my bed over a white top sheet so that the contrast really shows the detail of the crochet pattern and I want to make sure that if I dye it, it won't discolor the white sheets underneath. The top 75% is a Red Heart Light Sage while the lower 25% now has a more blue-ish green tint to it from being faded. What color and process do you recommend (if any)?

 

Thanks so much.

Acrylic isn't going to dye easily or well. If it was wool, that would be a different story, but I really don't have any suggestion other than to let the other end fade out to match. Sorry.
