Would it be okay to dye a light tan wool yarn? :?? I got a good deal at the Goodwill today, a whole bag of handwash virgin wool for $3!!!! There's an odd ball skein in there that's a light tan with some dark strands of brown hair mixed in(its feltable.. I checked) They arn't major strands.

Would this be able to dye?

I think it would be fine to dye, it just may not come out the color you expect since you are starting with a tan color. It's cheap enough why not experiment? You may love it!

Yeah. I'm not a big fan of the bright colors though, so maybe :)

I'm thinking of getting cherry kool-aid tomorrow and making it strong... or even black cherry. I want a purply-red color, or even a dark blue or purple..

Hopefully something will go good. :)
