I used 2 teaspoons of turmeric in a little bit of water to make a 'sauce', (same as making custard.) I added it to, two pints of cold water. Added fabric and threads, bought it to the boil, simmered for 5 minutes. Left it to 'cure' for 6 hours and then rinsed out.
The colours remind me of the Harrie Krishna's that I used to see everyday in the early 70's when I worked in Debenham and Freebody in Wigmore Street.
