sorry if this has been discussed, i searched to no avail...

I have some RIT dye (not my favorite, because it always seems to fade) in blue and purple and I'm thinking of dyeing some pink yarn which was given to me (100%wool).  I have a ton of this yarn and already made some things, but I can't think of anything else to do with it.  It is kind of a coral pink (it is from the 1950s). 

SO... I want to dye it with what I already have and I wonder, if I don't swish it much will it still shrink?  Does anyone else have that fading experience with RIT?  Any recommendations on how to arrange the yarn to get nice long color changes- I'm thinking I should dye the whole thing blue and then dip into purple?
