You might have better results with a different mordant to get the color to 'bite' into the fiber better.

I've done very little dyeing (KA or acid dyes) but have don't a bit with natural dyes. Changing the mordant will affect the out come.

You also might want to think about adding some salt to your dye pot or rinse water
