November 2023 – Indigo Dyeing

From Frank:  Sandy and I went to Anne Dunham’s for Indigo dying.  We adjusted the ph and added the dye remover.  Then we added the bucket heater.  We then went in and soaked our warps in hot water.  We then eat.  When the dye remover was in the pot for 1 hour and the pot was up to 130 F, we removed the heater and started dying.  We dipped for 4 minutes mostly.  Sandy had 5 small warps and I had 4 small warps.  Sandy only dipped twice at most.  I dipped some of mine up to 4 times.  We got dark blue after 2 4-minute dips.
