My New Fun – Yarn Dyeing

Wool yarn dyed with koolaid. Koolaid contains a lot of citric acid. With the addition of vinegar and “cooking” in the microwave, the color is permanent. LemonLime, Lemonade, and LemonLime with a touch of BerryBlue and Orange to tone down the bright green.

Completed skein. Enough yarn for a hat or a scarf.

The process from start to completion:

Grape Kool-aid has been applied to wet yarn. A heavy concentration on the right, less Kool-aid on the left.

Yarn has been microwaved and rinsed.

The completed socks for Hillary. I only had one skein of this yarn, therefore, they are shorty socks!
