(1) Light, 60 Lb

Boil 6 lb. solid extract of peach wood till dissolved add the solution to a sufficient bulk of warm water; give the yarns 5 turns; lift, and add 1 1/2 pints black liquor (acetate of iron). Give 3 turns more; wash in cold water, and dry.

For a medium shade, the process is similar; but double the quantity of black liquor is taken.

For a dark drab, boil 6 lb. cutch till dissolved; add to hot water, and work the yarns in it 5 turns. Run off the liquid, and wring out the yarns. Dissolve 1 1/2 lb. peach wood extract; add this to a warm water; work 5 turns; lift, and add 1 qt. black liquor; give 3 more turns; wash, and dry.

If a yellower shade is wanted, a little fustic is boiled with the peach wood; if redder, a little alum is used with the peachwood; and if browner, a little Bismarck brown.

The shades produced may also be varied by topping with aniline colours in small quantities.

(2) Silver, 60 Lb

Dissolve 2 oz. logwood extract; add the solution to a warm water; give the yarns 10 turns; lift, and add 1/2 pint black liquor (acetate of iron), and give 4 turns more. Wash in cold water, and dry.
