Those of you have dyed wool before. I have only ever done cold water dyeing in the past, so got away witha plastic bowl as the dye tub. But for my next exploit I am venturing into natural dyeing and need to “cook” the ingredients. What do you use as the dye pot? Do you use it as a dye pot exclusively, or are you able to use it for culinary uses afterwards? My mum has given me her old jam pan, but it is aluminium, and whilst I wouldn’t use it for cooking because it is aluminium, she may want to borrow it back at times, also I wasn’t sure if the aluminium would affect the dyeing process in any way?
