Fabric for a dress part 3--working in the dark

By the light of my headlamp (with a swarm of teeny gnats accompanying me wherever I went) I finished wrapping this piece--6 feet of pipe, 4 yards of dupioni, 10 layers, and 62 yards of hemp string, no bugs swallowed--in about 2 and half hours. 
String removed, but still on the pipe this morning.  Looks dramatic, but you'll see the final color is much more subdued.  Big diff between wet and dry.

I took some pics before washing, but there was no appreciable color shift with this piece.  Results below.
