alum iron
From this to.......... this

Quite a change. Pomegranate dye with an iron od. One gram in 6 liters of water for 30 minutes and the yellow did not dull. It went away!!The silk skein did not change hand nor luster, but i covered my back with an acid rinse, just in case.i know what iron does to silk in the long run, all those cheap silk blouses that sort of melt away. i don't mind the drastic change in color, what i' would really mind is a change in the silk properties.
Now i know that pomegranates can also give black with a slight greenish cast, or pool water brown hair :)

Happy Monday to you!
