To dye a deep FILLEMOT.
For twenty-eight pounds of wool, take ten ounces of galls, and a pound of fucette or virette wood, half a pound of madder, and two ounces of gum gutta; boil the dye, and stir the ware in it, till the dye hath penetrated it sufficiently.
If you would have it brighter, then take but six ounces of galls, and six ounces of madder; and add a quarter of a pound of verdegrease.
Or else take half a pound of fucette wood, a quarter of a pound of galls, and one ounce of madder, and one ounce of vitriol.

To dye a FILLEMOT.
First, let the ware be dyed yellow; then pass it through the hot black dye, and when it is cool, rinse it, always remembring that the lighter the yellow, the lighter will be the Fillemot; then having set fair water over the fire, put in half an ounce of brasile wood; let it boil for a quarter of an our, and then pass the ware through it.

First dye the silk in the last-mentioned yellow; then for every pound of silk, take a quarter of a pound of blue Provence wood; boil it in a bag as usual for half an hour, in the quantity of a pail of water; take the bag out, and let the suds stand to cool, till you can just bear your hand in it; then lay the yellow silk to soak in it for a full hour; then take it out, and boil a sufficient quantity of powdered soot in half a pail of water for half an hour, and afterwards put in the silk. When it is taken out, let it be rinsed in a good strong lye of wood ashes, and after that in river water, and then hang it out to dry.

To dye a light FILLEMOT.
Take a quarter of a pound of galls beaten small; boil them an hour and a half in a pail of water; then put in a quarter of a pound of vitriol, a handful of soot beaten small, and so put the yellow silks into it, till it grows dark enough; then rinse it and dry it.

Fill a well clean'd kettle half full of water, and for every pound of silk, take half a pound of yellow wood, which boil in a bag in the water for some time; then add one pound of galls, and fill up the kettle with stale, or old gall water; then take the silks off the poles (they having been first boil'd, alumed, and rinsed) put them into the kettle, and boil them for an hour; then soak them in the liquor a whole night, and in the morning wring them out, rinse, and beat them; and afterwards brown them a little, till they become sufficiently deep.

A slight FILLEMOT.
For every pound of silk, take one pound of Fucet-wood, and half an ounce of pot ashes; boil them together, and in order to render the dye deep enough, brown it with a little black at pleasure; when the silk is deep enough dy’d, rinse and dry it.
