Madder Skein

This skein of 60/2 silk spent about 24 hours in a madder dyebath. I wanted a light value that would play nice with the warp yarn colors. I think this will do just fine.

There's still a lot of color n the dyebath, so it has been set aside until Monday, when I can wind and mordant more silk and be prepared to let it rest in the dyebath for days and days. I'll try the methods suggested by Neki and Deb in earlier comments to see if the resulting color is more red with a high pH.
