I want to make a summer jacket but it's going to need knitfuse interfacing on the body to give it a bit more weight. I'd like to avoid lining it but am having trouble with the idea of the white interfacing showing on blue fabric. Does anyone know if it's possible to dye knitfuse a lighter blue color?

No, but I have a long time ago, dyed plain white nylon tricot several times (like underware) just even in the sink with only hot and not boiling water at all, and Rit dry or liquid dye. That takes even RIT Dye pretty easy and quick. If it's polyester instead, then I think that is not going to take the RIT dye. Also if the fusible stuff on the back of it got too hot, it probably would soften and start to melt. And the places the fusible stuff on the back of it was, I think might kind of act like a resist for the dye even there and might block the dye right there too. But, you could try it, and see what happens as long as it's nylon, as a package of just Rit dye is only a few bucks.

Thanks for the input. Maybe I'll get some dye this weekend and give it a try. Nothing ventured ...
