Apparently, medieval cloth dyeing techniques involved the cultivation of demonic tentacles in barrels, submerged in liquid; the finest tentacles produced a pigment similar to tyrian purple. The bigger question, though, was whether the dye retained the demonic taint inherent to the tentacles - or through generations of tentacle breeding, had the demonic influence been brought down to a negligible level? Did the color affect the transmissibility? And what exactly does it mean to be demonic, anyhow?
