Alkanet root is not water soluble, so this organic matter must be soaked in alcohol before it will give its colour. It dyes my Tencel knit anywhere from a lilac purple to a mauve, depending on the alkalinity of the water, both in the dyebath and in the rinse. I'm on well water but have a water softener in my house, so I have that choice. Alkanet is less lightfast than other dyes, and also has the ability to change its hue based on the alkalinity of the wearer. It lives with you!
