Double Dyeing

The warm temperatures today enticed me to do a quick batch of dyeing. I did a 3-step gradation of strong orange and then over-dyed those fabrics with a 3-step gradation of black. The 5-gallon pails and deep restaurant sinks work great for the low-water immersion process.

Since it was warmer outside this afternoon, I put the pails of fabric outside in the sun to "batch."

These are the light fabrics and the 3-step orange gradation fabrics drying on the outside clothes lines.

These are some of the wonderful dark oranges and browns that came from the medium and dark gradations.
