Color Block Sweater

This is an angora hair sweater I scored at the good ol' $.99 store.  I removed some crazy-giant shoulder pads that gave away the 80s of it all.  It needed a little something to jazz up the plain milky whiteness of it all, so I decided to dip it in a little wash of color to see what would happen.

1.  Wet the fabric you plan to dye with cold water.  I used Tulip One Step Dyes in orange for this project.

Squeezing the fabric helps to really saturate the dye into the fibers.

Make sure not to get dye on the rest of the sweater by leaving it outside the bucket.

Hang on a tree to dry, making sure not to let the dye touch the rest of the sweater.
