I used Flavor-aid to dye some wool, yesterday. Making Easter Baskets..
left is Kiwi-Watermelon and Orange, Tamarindo, Root Beer and Cherry, Jamacia flavors..

Wow, that is really cool! I love the Jamica color. I just got some dye-your-own wool and I'm really excited to see how that adventure will turn out.
And again, I love your dyeing job! Thanks for sharing!

What is Flavor Aid? A drink mix like Kool Aid? Pretty yarns!
