The silk when alumed is to be dyed in the decoction of Brazil wood according to the shade required; it is then to be washed and dyed in archil: and it is afterwards washed a second time. After this it is dipped in the blue vat, and wrung and dried with the same accuracy used in greens and blues.

For dyeing silk black and some other colours, see Chapter s V. and VI.
