From the Dorr Mill Store
Notebook from previous dyeing sessions, open for reference.
Notice the steam on this pot. The water is simmering the whole time. Depending on the color I want I measure the water in inches and usually use a full packet for the most intense color. The red pot was at about two inches. The blue had more like 3 or 4 inches.
The first piece will be the darkest, taking up most of the dye. The later pieces get lighter. Great if you want a range of value in the same color. The water will be clear if you immerse enough fabric.
I added a touch of Old Gold to the green and got some really nice avocado and limey tones.
Each color group is rinsed and spun separately. I love this part, I’m almost done.
