Kilims: Back to Browns

This interesting piece of wool is Mahogany. A Prochem dye right out of the jar. I used 1/4 tsp. of Mahogany over 1/2 yard of Dorr natural processed in a Presto Pot in water only enough to cover the wool, and guess what??? I did NOT stir the wool, hence the marvelous mottling. Click on the photo to see the great variation in value and hue. It is a delectable color to use in Kilims.

  1. So Tony,
    Could you enlighten me...
    What is a Presto Pot?
    Here in Northern NY, we have Presto deep fryers, Presto pressure cookers, Presto fry pans, Presto kettles (that are really a pot), and Presto wax melting pots (they seems to be propane fired).
    So what am I looking for to get GORGEOUS wool!
