Though i'm abroad, i'm considering dyeing yarn for my needs and i've read around a bit and actualy discovered what Kool-aid is :rofling: that was funny to me... i read a tutorial on that and started checking where i can get undyed yarn for really reasonable prices, because buying hand-dyed yarn+shipping is way too much for me. I can get Kool-aid on eBay (lots of colours and lots of bags for low cost) and i saw that KnitPicks sell Bare yarn that is undyed. So here is the question - they have there a superwash bare yarn here (http://www.knitpicks.com/Bare+-+Superwash%2fNylon+Fingering+Weight_YD5420145.html ) and they say it'll dye. Can superwash wool take the dye? Anybody tried?
Thank you :hug:

I haven't used kool-aid, but dying KP's bare yarns is one of my favorite things about Knit Picks!! I'm using some superwash that I dyed for my entrelac socks (http://www.cometosilver.com/knit/wip/DSC00626.JPG)!
