Whee! I have just ordered 40 packets of Kool-Aid for dyeing wool. This probably isn't exciting to anyone else, especially if you're in America, but for some reason it really appeals. Even though I know it's just powdered food dye and fruity scents. I'm sick of the vinegar stench that comes from my microwave when I dye wool, so hopefully this will solve that problem.

And for those who are coming to the great dye-o-rama (details yet to be finalised), you can experiment with them too! Hooray!

sounds fun.
i want to dye variegated yarn with tamarillo (red) and beetroot (pink) and maybe red cabbage (purple).
got any koolaid that'll match my veges?

oh, and i think i'll have to use some vinegar with the veges... sorry.

i can deal with it... I will be using some veges myself, and of course with normal food colouring you need vinegar. I just hope the Kool-Aid stench covers the vinegar stench! :)
