Madder and Cochineal?

Just wondering if anyone has used these two together and how well it worked if so? I really want to dye a wool sweater red, but madder can sometimes end up sort of tomato soup red, which is too orangy for my taste.

Any thoughts on getting a nice pure red, one that if it has to go to one side of the color wheel, tends towards blue-red rather than orange-red?
