I wanted to change the color to blue for our family room. I didn't use color remover first because I didn't feel it needed it. I used Rit DyeMore in Sapphire Blue. Unfortunately it wasn't as dark as I liked.
I asked Rit for help. They suggested using Graphite to darken the Sapphire Blue. I made a new dye bath with Graphite and Blue Sapphire. We all love the way it came out
