Moving along, Kate and Mary had never dyed with acid dyes and it's one of my favorite things to do as you get gorgeous color. Acid dyes only work on animal fiber so wool and silk take it beautifully. They also exhaust themselves quickly so you are left with clear water and very colorful fabric at the end of the process - usually around 20 mins.
