Exact - in Wool Dying ?

This is the Dictionary description for EXACT:

–adjective , strictly accurate or correct: an exact likeness; an exact description

look at this picture now.....

look closely...

the top is a different shade than the bottom! well of course it is.... it's from a different bath bath.

I have to vent here... I love it when people buy wool and put every last strip of wool in, come back ask for more wool. I put a new dye bath on and I guess me not being as skilled in the absolutely positively exact shade they complain (in a nice way).

Anyone that has dyed wool will know the the problem areas, just few more grains of dye the measuring spoon is not holding the exact amount, the amount of water for mix, the amount of chlorine in the water that week (thanks Ben) I will try to re-dye this but at the end of the day better area measuring on their part or not using every last strip before coming back would be a better option. We will probably pull some strips and help her move it around. To my knowledge that is the only solution I may have to work with.

If anyone else has had this problem and would like to share I would appreciate it.
