I have crocheted a diaper cover out of fisherman's wool and dyed it, now I can't get it to stop bleeding. I have rinsed and rinsed and rinsed and it still is bleeding. Any suggestions on how I can get the extra dye out?<br><br>
Thanks<br>

Providing that you used acid dye (either commercial or Kool Aid) you need to add heat & vinegar.<br><br>
Add your cover to a microwave safe bowl filled with water & vinegar and microwave it for about 3 minutes. Let it rest and rinse. That should stop the bleed.<br><br>
I have instructions on dyeing a finished wool garment <a href="http://www.llamajama.com/articles.php" target="_blank">here</a>

Thanks. I will give that a try. Also thanks for the site on dyeing. I did another one in kool-aid and it doesn't bleed quite as bad as this one!!<br><br>
