Eco Dying in the Microwave Experiment

I have been reading about eco dying in the microwave and it certainly makes sense from a time and resource point of view. The basics are the same but you roll the bundle in a piece of old wet wool and then wrap that in plastic. I thought I would give it ago. I microwaved the bundle )plastic not applied in the above photo) for 5 minutes and then took out the bundle. Admittedly I am using cotton but it has been well scoured and mordanted. Maybe they used silk or wool in the results shown on line
