Yellow silk Dyes, and first Blossom-Yellow.
Dye it after the same manner as gold colour, then heighten it with orange-dying suds, after which rinse and dry it.

To dye silk yellow.
Procure a clean kettle, put in a sufficient quantity of water, and for every pound of silk put in two pound of yellow wood, and six ounces of galls; let the yellow wood boil an hour before you put in the galls, and afterwards boil them together for half an hour, and then put in the silk, having first alumed and rinsed it, stirring the dye; then wring it out of the kettle with a little pot-ashes; and after it has been wrung out, put it into the dye again, and leave it there to soak for a whole night, and in me morning, rinse, beat, and dry it.

To dye stuff's a brimstone Yellow.
Boil the stuff in three pound of alum, one pound of tartar, and three ounces of salt for an hour; throw away the water, then make a liquor of yellow-brown, laying it in the same order as straw in brew-houses; then add lye-ashes, and draw the stuff through the dye three or four times very quick; to do which dexterously, it will require the assistance of three or four men.

Let the stuffs be alumed as usual for half an hour, and then for every pound of ware take half a pound of yellow dye-weed, and a handful of wood-ashes; boil them a quarter of an hour, then throw the rinsed ware into the liquor, work it about, 'till you perceive it to be well dyed, then cool it and rinse it out.
