The Fuschia File, part 4

Today I tried an overdye of Rit Dark Brown. But the fabric was so resistant; it almost seemed to be repelling the dye! When I dumped the used dye out, it had turned a dark wine color. I think the fabric changed the dye's color more than the dye changed the fabric's color.

Now the wool is more of a raspberry shade. I stuck a post it that used to match on it so you could see the difference. But it's still quite bright. I think an overdye of black is in order, don't you? Or green. Something to muddy it a bit.
