Robinia bark gives a soft brownish hue. Perhaps with a shade of red, or, almost a light chai color. I used the bark for dyeing only on one sort of of hemp cotton. Looking at the bark is the color I got.

Go to this page to have the correct step-by-step process. I leave the cotton overnight in the dye bath.

I use pieces of scoured cotton fabric which weigh (less than) 100 gram in a 20 liter pot.
