This fabric doesn't actually have any kinky overtones - I called it this because I wrapped it and pegged all its edges into a restrained bundle to dye it.
The results were not what I had planned, nothing like what I was trying to do actually, but I'm quite fascinated by the colours and designs that have appeared.
Because the fabric was folded and ironed into a rectangle, the crease lines are clearly visible, and the designs are mainly symmetrical.
It's hard to see from the photos but one end is a very rich purple and brown. I applied the colours with quite an interval between them, which has added to the depth.
I think I'll do more of this.
