Here's how my hand-dyed cottons look this morning:I've given them an initial rinse and answered my first and most important question. The dyes are great! I've achieved strong, consistent colour in all my samples. They're no apparent difference between the fabrics I rinsed out yesterday evening and the ones I left overnight. That answers my second question--whether they need extra time to react. They don't. Now I get a chance to play. It won't be today because I have the Northcote Makers' Market starting in a few hours. But I can relax about having the dyes I need for next week's workshop.
