How much dye to purchase:
All natural dyeing is based on wog or wof - weight of goods or weight of fabric
Here is the formula for the Logwood Shavings to dye 1 pound of fabric.
For example 1 pound of fabric = 16 ounces or 453.59237 grams
Round up to 500 grams (17.6 ounces)
multiply the % of logwood shavings x the wog/wof
25% by weight of fiber for dark purple (with Alum mordant), dark blue-purple (with Copper mordant), dark grey-charcoal (with Iron mordant)
10-15% by weight of fiber for light purples, medium grays
25% Logwood Shavings x 500 grams of fabric = 125 grams or 4.40 ounces of Logwood Shavings
10% Logwood Shavings x 500 grams of fabric = 50 grams or 1.75 ounces of Logwood Shaving
