This info was really helpful for troubleshooting! Thanks. I found I forgot to keep adding the dyestuff into the water but I suppose the more you do you with a specific dye…you eventually get to know the approximate quantity you need? Thanks for the tips Louise.
Yes, exactly. Each dye varies and so do individual preferences for colour and darkness. Wool is very receptive to natural dyes, but when doing dye baths for cotton we need to be more careful about creating a strong dye.
Louise, does high temperatures do not damaged some protein-based fabrics? i mean when you boil them
No, because they are immobilised through folding and tying them up, they can be cooked at high temperatures without it causing any felting or other damage.
