Dorr #46 wool was used, which is camel-coloured, but any new or recycled tan could be used. Over 1/4 yard of tan, 1/16 teaspoon of dye was used. Each dye pot had only one colour of dye: Majic Carpet dyes Red, Red Violet , Moss Green, Blue, Bottle Green, Reddish Brown and Orange, as well as Pro Chem Teal and Cranberry. A small piece of natural-coloured wool was added to each pot for comparative purposes.
The dyeing process was simple, as only one dye was used in each batch. It would be interesting to repeat the process with other base-coloured wools such a pastel blue or pink. The experiment produced beautiful, useable colors. --Rita
