Put only as many silk scarves into the dye bath as will be able to agitate loosely without clumping together, doubling the recipe for the dye bath if needed for a giant scarf. If the silk remains folded or crumpled or clumped together for the entire soaking time, it will dye with a mottled look.
When the silk is immersed, set your timer for ten minutes. Stir the pot often to agitate the fabric and ensure that it remains loose in the dye bath.
