4. Now wash the wool in warm soap water and then in clean water or in luke warm water.

5. Take the ink for dying in a pot and keep in the stove till it becomes luke warm and then immerse the wool in the dye and heat it in simmer for an hour. Use a piece of wooden or glass rod to turn the wool at times. You can also add water if the amount of ink is less.

6. Lift the wool in between to check the color and heat it till the shade of the color is darker than what you want. Then squeeze the wool mildly and leave it in a cool place for drying. After drying the wool rinse it in cold water and then dry it again in a cool place.
