This morning the mixture was strained for dyeing. I wet the fabric I had previously soaked in soda ash and allowed to dry and used a pole wrap to create patterns. Here is a picture of it dipped for just a minute. It has more of a green shade than i was wanting.
I wet fabric, not soaked in soda ashed, in water and vinegar,twisted it and dipped it in some extra dye. It instantly took on this lovely purple shade.
I splashed some vinegar on the other cloth and where it touched it became purple. So I added about a tablespoon of vinegar to the solution. I like the two colors together. Will see the results in a few days.
After checking this evening the fabric looked more of a solid blue.
