# Cover them with water and let the mixture sit for a few days in a warm location, stirring the mixture each day.
# The mixture will get a bit smelly, so it is best to store it outside,... covered. You can add some baking soda and sugar to the mixture.
# Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or nylons stocking to remove the pulp.
# Add the liquid to a dyepot filled with water. Simmer for x-about an hour.
# Add clean, premordanted wool to the dyepot.
# Simmer for an hour or until sufficient colour is obtained.
# Allow the dyepot to cool. Then remove the dyed wool.
# Rinse and let dry.
