Working on larger Pieces of Eco Dying

I want to try making some larger pieces of fabric to make clothing so I am using this fish kettle/fish steamer. You can see it has to go across two elements. But it does allow for the use of quite a large width of fabric. I have tried using flexible hose to steam larger pieces but this is difficult to bundle tightly and because it is plastic the heat can change the diameter of the tubing during steaming so that prints are not so clear. Even though I wrap my bundles to reduce moisture from steam getting into the bundles I have started placing a towel over the top of the steamer to absorb condensation from the steamer
