Cyanotype Toning: Using Botanicals to Tone Blueprints Naturally

Blue is a quiet color that encourages consensus and order. go-dyed fabric is washed, tiny amounts of dye are washed away, and the thread comes with them.

What I don't understand is why  <amounts> is plural, not singular, though <Amount> is uncountable.

Can you help me with this?

According to 'LDOCE', 'amount' can be used as a countable or an uncountable noun. Using it as an uncountable noun seems more common.
