charcoal grey

Charcoal Cottongauze

I dyed another few yards of harem cloth today using the same recipe as last time:1/2 tablespoon (aka 1-1/2 teaspoons) charcoal grey dye, 1-1/2 galloons of hot water (aka 24 cups), 1-1/2 cups of kosher salt, 1/6 cup soda ash (aka 2 tbl, 2 tsp), then I washed with 1/8 cup synthrapol in my front loader. I want to work with this quantity of fabric and same dye recipes for a little while to create a baseline understanding. I then hope to start mixing up shades with dye combos and different light and darkness of dyes. These greys are quite cool and I would like to work on creating a warmer grey base for felted pieces.
