Can dye stains be removed from wool?
 
I made the mistake of washing and lanolizing my Kissas natural wool soaker with my up cycled black soakers and now it is looking terrible. Can anything be done to remove the dye that bled onto it?

Dawn and cool water maybe. Absolutely no hot water or anything acidic like vinegar or it will set the dye.

I second the Dawn and cool water soak. No agitation though, you don't want to felt them. It will probably only fade the dyes, not fully take them out. You can overdye them if it's really bugging you, just get some Wilton's icing dye and vinegar.
