 4:12
 4:13
4:12 They shall take all the sanctuary's service utensils, and place them on a sky blue wool cloth. They shall then be covered with a case of blue-processed skins, and placed on a carrying frame.
Velakchu et-kol-kley hasharet asher yeshartu-vam bakodesh venatnu el-beged tchelet vechisu otam bemichseh or tachash venatnu al-hamot.
4:13 They shall remove all the ashes from the [sacrificial] altar, and place a dark red cloth over it.
Vedishnu et-hamizbe'ach ufarsu alav beged argaman.



Commentary:

sacrificial
  (Rashi).

dark red
  Argaman in Hebrew, see Exodus 25:4. This would appear to indicate that the dark red variety was less costly than the sky blue dye.
