Ugly Shirt Again

Here's a pic of the shirt in the indigo vat. I washed it in the washer first, then dyed it, 5 dips, it'll be kind of mottled. The shirt has some intesting tones to it, but I still want to put it in the cochineal vat to see what happens. I'd like fewer yellow tones, so I'm going to try and pull the red out. It'll be pretty dark by th e time I'm done. But now I 'm thinking I have some white linen, about 5 yards worth, that I want to dye, I'm going to try for the purples that I got with the cotton yarn.
