As you can probably tell, two pouches of the strawberry-kiwi kool-aid did not do much for an 8″ round pan of soaked wool. It only saturated a few places on the wool, I expected it to go much further. I plan on seeing if this much color will adhere to the fiber without heat before either using more Kool-Aid or rinsing out the other pan of wool. It does not show as clearly in this picture as it does in person, but this is actually a very pale green color. While it shows up as a striking contrast in this picture it barely shows in person.
The blue raspberry kool-aid on the other hand shows up as an amazingly vibrant blue, in the few places that the two pouches covered. This is an example of trying to keep what color I did manage. I am more willing to lose the little bit of green than I am this pretty blue shade.
It has been a couple of days and I am still chickening out on rinsing these out, tomorrow I will have to bite the bullet and see if the green has remained. Wish me luck, I’ll post an update then.
One thought on “Kool-Aid Progress”
It does take a lot of kool aid to dye yarn. I’ll be curious to see how it does with no heat to set it. I have only done it in the crockpot or microwave.
