Put two or three quarts of walnut. Shells, or walnut-roots into a copper, make it boil, and then put in the stuffs and rollers; and after a convenient time take them out and cool them, and make the ingredients boil again; then put in the cloth again, and let it boil for half an hour; then take it out and cool it, and add to the liquor, three pounds of madder, and one pound of galls, putting them in together with the stuffs, let them boil for an hour, then take out the cloth and cool it; then put into the kettle two pounds of copperas, stir it well about, and put the cloth into the copper again, look well after the fire, and keep stirring the stuff about, till the colour is deep enough, then rinse it out, &c.

A nutmeg or cinnamon colour.
Boil the stuff, with two pound of alum, and half a pound of tartar, and some sharp lye, for an hour; then pour offthe water and put fresh into the kettle, and make the flota of three pounds of madder, a sufficient quantity of tartar-ashes, three pound of of alder-bark; boil them together, and dye the cloth for an hour.
Some dye it pale; but if you would have it deeper, add two or three pounds of copperas, and the cloth will be of a very good nutmeg colour.

First boil alum and tartar, as for the red-dye, then half madder it, and add to the madder a quarter of a pound of galls to every fifteen yards of stuffs.
You must take care it be not at most above half dyed red; and after that pass it through the copperas till it is dark enough, then rinse it, and after that pass it through the yellow dye, and it will be of a beautiful nutmeg colour.
