Thanks a whole lot, Steve and @Dlaniger and @Blare . I still view myself as a student. No doubt a student who has learned a lot over the last year. I’m now learning a lot about dyeing vintage grosgrain. Mixing dye colors on vintage ribbon that already has a light hue of some color you’re trying to change is like voodoo alchemy! Wish I could find a source for good new ribbon having the same workable properties as the vintage stuff. I’ve visited Hufvud’s hat site and was impressed with the look of quality work and the use of artistic flair. It’s satisfying to find out that while in hand their quality is just as good. Thanks, Reggie.
