The gradation dyeing with recycled soda ash continued on Sunday with a series of reds.
I set the washing machine for the final washout on Sunday night and Monday morning, they were hung to dry (only till damp)
When removed from the line slightly damp - ironing them is quick and easy with my trusty Ironrite. This ironing machine was popular in the 40's. It is a godsend when I have a big batch of fabric to iron. It does a fabulous job.
Here are the reds. From left to right, the colors are: Scarlet red, Chinese red, Fire red, and Fuchsia toned with a little bit of New Black. (Dharma color names)
