Help Dyeing Viscose Please

I had been told that viscose dyes well using a reactive dye but I’ve tried dyeing grey viscose black twice and each time I end up with brown.  Why would this be…is there another property of viscose that I don’t know about?

Thanks

    Rayon viscose is funny. It takes the dye in unpredictable ways. Also, black is a hard color to get. If you are over dyeing, you may have a tinge of the previous color creating the muddy-brown. Sorry, I can’t offer much hope.
