Has anyone had any trouble with their hand dyed wool soakers fading in the sun? I had it laying out to dry and the sun from the window hit it. It faded before it even dried. I mean alot!!! Left purple streaks where the ties were laying. Guess I'll be drying in a different location from now on. This one was dyed with food grade dye. It was ruined.

I guess that's the price of using "safe and gentle" dyes - not really colorfast. I'd treat it like a watercolor painting - never store in direct sunlight!

I am a little surprised that it faded so fast. Who knew?

Sorry - overdye with black cherry - that covers everything haha!
