Mists of Avalon Cosplay

I'm thinking about making a dress and robe a'la Mists of Avalon to wear to the Ren Faire this summer, and I have one question -- what shade of blue is woad? The books mention woad dye in a lot of places, and I know it's blue, but is it a really dark blue, or what? Anyone know?

I plan to do a Vivvian cosplay at SDCC this year. What I've done is take not only the book's description, but also the influence of the mini-series to help employ a basic design. Basically, I am dyeign more woal fabrics different chades of blue for her. I would assume the a Woad color is far more dull then indigo and more like the Caryn blue then the purply blue.
