The matter of dyeing or coloring garments was given a great deal of attention by our grandmothers, but most of this class of work is now done by professionals. It is impossible to give specific directions for dyeing cloth; different kinds of materials require different treatment. Many different dyes, varying so widely in nature and use, have been made that it is best, if one expects to do any dyeing at home, to follow accurately the directions furnished with the package.
