Successfully dyed my khaki Browncoat!
Sunday, July 29, 2007

Yes, definitely a Woo-Hoo moment, folks. I'd bought this really cool, lightweight Australian-style duster (made in Korea) but it was a light khaki color. So I finally got around to dying it a darker shade of brown. First time. Plus the cotton fabric was treated with oil to make it water repellant so I was worried it wouldn't dye well enough or else end up splotchy. But after a double amount of cocoa brown RIT dye and a bunch of salt and not too much water and a LOT of stirring in a large plastic laundry bucket, I'm happy to report my new Browncoat came out a nice shiny reddish brown that is WAY better than the khaki original color. Will try to get some pics soon...
