You will need dye conducive for cellulose fibers. You can order some from Dharma Trading (http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/3246-AA.shtml?lnav=dyes.html).

Or you can get some Rit dye from the local store. Rit is a combination of dyes for both cellulose & protein fibers so there is a LOT of left over dye in the dye pot. When you rinse your yarn, be sure to rinse until clear!
