Dye Your Own Yarn With Kool-Aid

koolaid1I felt a strong sense of nostalgia as I scoured my neighborhood grocery store looking for the sugary, powdered substance that my parents only let me have in moderation when growing up.

I found the Kool-Aid aisle almost instantaneously.  After quickly glancing at my choices of changin’ cherry, pink lemonade, and black cherry, I found what I was looking for: blue moon berry.  It was the perfect blend of turquoise and aqua, which I would use to dye my yarn.

Kool-Aid is readily available and non-toxic, which makes it the perfect substance to dye your own yarn.  Kool-Aid dyeing works on animal fibers such as wool, mohair, and alpaca but does not work on cotton or synthetics.  You must use pure wool yarn for the best results!
