    Default Olive Drab Green Dye?

    So, I remember a thread on here a while back about a guy asking where to get OD Green Dye. I don't remembe who it was, and the search function has begrudgingly omitted "OD" and "Dye" from my search parameters because they are too short.

    So, does anyone remember who that was asking, or where the thread is?

    More importantly, did that person ever find any OD Green dye? I'm in the market for some and I was wondering if he or she had any success.

    Thanks!

    Google search for OD Green RIT dye. It is a recipe of brown and green mixed that will get you a nice OD.

    Google-fu homie!

    I've had real good luck with these guys. If it is 100% cotton, it is pretty straight forward. If it is a blend you need dye for the cotton part and the poly or whatever part. Good luck
