I am told, that in period the colour formed by mixing red dye and blue dye (eg overdyeing madder with woad) was considered to be brown. Thus, when looking for period dye receipies, don't be surprised if there are no mentions to burgandy, maroon or wine coloured fabrics, and there are mentions of fancy recepies for brown.
