the color is much darker, but the light today is not very good, it's cloudy and muggy , no more dyeing. 3 dips, wanted couple more, but the material is cotton and paper yarn and was concerned about its possible disintegration.plus it was a gift from a dear friend and didn't want to lose it to high ph.
these went into the vat,with recklesness because they were cheap cotton pants from the chinese bazaar. got them while doing el camino because night were too cool for shorts.nothing to lose here a lot to gain!
proud to say that with my 30 liter vat i was able to dye them without streaking.
waiting for the weather to improve so i can keep dyeing. if it's cloudy or storm menacing using the vat is not recommended.
