A few months ago there was a discussion in one of the Ravelry groups that I belong to about dyeing yarn with Kool Aid. I happened to mention that I had seen Kool Aid in the stores for a short time here in PNG but hadn’t bought any due to the price and that now it had disappeared. A very kind Raveller offered to post some to me. It arrived last week and so Gorgeous Girl and I popped some yarn into a pot.
Firstly I used a packet of cherry to over-dye this hand-spun skein from this
I’m rather impressed with myself.
We then used Mixed Berry and Blue Lemonade to dye some electric blue yarn. This turned out delightfully mottled, a real kettle dyed look. However, my camera is unable to capture it’s true beauty 😦
It’s much more vibrant than this and I’m really, really pleased with it. It turned out exactly as I wanted it to. I’ll have to try and take another photo at a different time of day. This was over-dyed over a cream yarn base.
