Dye Day Results

These are the 12 yards of fabric from yesterday's double-dye project. The first step was done with turquoise at 5%, and then the over-dye was done with black at 10%. The darkest fabrics are a dark teal color.

The two pieces created by pouring dye over the folded fabric came out with quite a bit of color, even though the dye solutions had been made up a year ago. (The dye was kept refridgerated.) While the fuschia didn't soak all the way through the fabric folds, the blues look good. The grape dye created a purple-tinged gray.

With this piece, too, the blues look very good. The navy dye on the right came out quite muted.
