How to Dye Yarn with Kool-Aid

So, I picked up some nice wool yarn at a garage sale a while back. Some of it was half-knitted projects, so I am in the process of unravelling it. Quite a bit of it is just plain ol' white, and to me that's kind of boring. But it is 100% wool, so I thought I'd look into dyeing it! I love the idea of upcycling, repurposing, or re-using materials!

I found this great page on how to dye yarn with kool-aid, and I'm in the process of doing it myself... pictures to come soon!


The nice thing about using food dye is its a lot less toxic than some of the other dyes out there. Though it really makes me wonder why the heck you'd want to eat or drink the stuff!
