Violet Shades On Wool






Violet shades can only be obtained from the coal-tar colours, and of
these there are not many. The recipes which are given below will serve
to show what dye-stuffs are available, and will give some idea of the
tints they dye.

#With Direct Dyes.# Pale Violet.--Prepare the dye-bath with 1/2 lb.
Sulphon Cyanine, 1/4 lb. Geranine B, 5 lb. Glauber's salt, and 5 lb.
acetate of ammonia, working at the boil for one hour.

#With Basic Dyes.# Violet.--The dye-bath is made with 1 lb. Methyl
Violet 3 B, and 10 lb. Glauber's salt. A fine pure shade of violet is
obtained. Methyl Violet is made in many brands, distinguished as B,
B B, 2 B, 4 B, etc. By using either one or the other of these, a
variety of tints of violet, from a red shade with Methyl Violet R
through violet (B) to a violet blue with Methyl Violet 7 B, can be
dyed.

#Puce.#--A very bright shade of puce is dyed by using Methyl Violet R,
and 10 lb. Glauber's salt.

#With Acid Dyes.# Violet.--Make the dye-bath with 2 lb. Acid Violet
4 B S, 10 lb. Glauber's salt, and 2 lb. sulphuric acid. This gives a
pure violet shade. If Acid Violet 6 B S be used a bluer shade is
obtained.
