At almost the same time the original post was made on red wool, I also
bought some red wool from Pendleton Wool, if you can imagine optic white in a red,
that was what I had, so red it almost hurt to look at it. And my Norse Lord
was loathe to wear it. So after reading all the posts I decided to over-dye
it. While I would like to try my hand at period dyes soon in the future, I am
not there yet. So with my bottle of RIT dye in a dark brown, I set out to tone
this red down. It took only 1/2 a bottle for my 3 yards, and about 5 short
minutes to get to the perfect red. My husband could not be happier with it,
and now wants the tunic it will make for an event in 2 days. It would only take
a couple hours, but geez!!!
