I got some cotton yarn to dye. But then found out I could not use Kool-aid..:noway: But that is ok, I have some wool order from KNitpick I can use.

Google around to found out what I could use. I found this place (http://yarngear.blogspot.com/2006/08/dyeing-and-hand-painting-cotton-yarn.html). Has anyone done this or have heard of it being done? I am going to give it a try. Will post picture good or bad.:thumbsup:

i have heard of those kits being used but i have never seen the results

i used this dye for my cotton
http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat3780&PRODID=prd45370
the color matched the packets exactly

i was going to buy one of those tye dye kits but decided i only wanted one color anyway. heh

i think they are the same kind of dyes so it should work pretty well.

i hope you have fun dyeing!
