I'm wondering if anyone can help me! I have created a knitted pice of work using Lang's Jawoll Superwash which is 75 % wool, 18% nylon,, 7% acrylic.
This piece is knitted in white and black/grey. I used black rit dye to try and paint with dye dark stripes on the black/grey areas. Unfortunately when I rinsed out the dye the rinse water greyed out the white areas. To make matters worse I used bleach on a section of the white to try and whiten it again but it stripped the white yarn of all color and now that section is a horrible natural yellow color.
So my question is can I restore any of the white back to the original bright white color? If anyone can help me, thank-you!

Why not overdye the whole thing a new colour to try to salvage the project? That's probably what I would do. I don't think you can restore the "white" of the yarn... Try a nice deep colour and it will look varigated with the black and white dyes underneath...
