More experiments with Eucalyptus

I am really glad I persevered with this exercise because this species did not give up its dye easily. I had to rest it overnight and boild again and rest again to get the samples above. What I have learnt from this is that the gum eco prints that I had been so disappointed with are probably the result of not steaming long enough and opening the bundle too quickly. that will be something to think about and try going forward
