My Mood:
I got a nice brown by kettle-dyeing with a kool-aid dye stock of mixed green (lemon lime) and orange. Black cherry can give you a reddish brown if you overdye a tan base.

I recommend making the dye stock, then testing a swatch in the microwave before committing. Definitely make the mixed stock, don't try to mix green and orange stocks in the pot unless you want a swamp/camo look.
