Even Easier

Posted: August 25, 2015 in Ramblings

I forgot about Colorhue Dyes (also available at Dharma):  these dye without the application of heat.  They do need to be diluted, though.  I overdyed the scarf in Jacquard’s black acid dye (and again it didn’t seem to darken much), so then I put three drops of black Colorhue into a quart of water and let the scarf soak for 2 hours.  It still didn’t seem to darken much, so I assume the silk has taken up all the dye it can reasonably take.  It looks acceptably dark once it’s on my neck, so, not a total loss.  But Colorhue would make things easier.
