Textile dyes need their water, and only the purest is good enough in the engagements for our peace and freedom. As little as a six to eight percent water deficit can be debilitating for any natural dyeing process. As a result, military logistics plans for battlefield craft workshops must take into account the approximately three gallons of daily water that each participant requires. However, the logistics burden of supplying water to deployed teams is comparable to that of fuel and the economic cost is high. Even more important is the cost in sweat and bad wool.
