 I'm wondering if any of you have any experience or advice for over dyeing wool crepe yardage i have. The material in question is an intense pea green color,which i actually kind of love- just not for the entire coat i'm considering making from it. I want it to be a nice dark grey, brown, black, or something inbetween and i don't mind if it becomes a bit felty-that'll just make it cosier. What i really want to know is what types of dye might work?

I bet you could get it to khaki or olive-ish with a dark brown dye bath. For larger pieces of yardage, you should go with a liquid dye. In my experience the powdered dyes are a paaaaaain for larger pieces. You could even use a cold-water dye especially for wool so it doesn't shrink/felt. You could always test-dye a little piece and see how you like it Cheesy

Awesome that you're making a coat! That's something I'm not brave enough to tackle Tongue
