In the dyepot today

Today I’ve started a new madder dyepot using around 5gm of madder extract. I’m concentrating mostly on dyeing threads as I’m running out of madder-dyed threads, but I’ve also put in a piece of silk noil and a piece of fine wool. I heated the pot to around 60C and will leave it overnight so that everything gets a good soak for 24 hours at least. Then I’ll hang up the threads and cloth to dry. Let’s see what I get tomorrow….
