Depends on what you are using to make the colour. Onion skins can be boiled until all the colour has come out of them then add your fabric item. Tea or coffee grounds can also be used to obtain brown colour by boiling. There are various other natural products that can be used (rhubard leaves, berries, cochineal etc) but I'm not an expert, I've only tried tea & coffee!
