  1. There is one herb used for dying brown. The name of it is the dock. You would get the roots of it and take all the clay of them. Then you would get a cup of water and throw it into a burner. You would put the roots into it also. When they would be boiling a half an hour you would take them up and you could dye anything brown with it.
