Dyeables
 
I was wondering where I could get yarn to dye with Kool-Aid for a good price.............

Ive searched ebay and found 100% natural wool, but would this be a good material for a scarf? Sounds kinda itchy... :thinking:

KnitPicks.com has dyeable Wool of the Andes, which has been very popular on this forum. You'd have to ask the others about whether it's itchy or not. I do know that it's mostly used for felting.

I personally know gals from my knitting group who have had marvelous results when dyeing this yarn with Kool-Aid.

If you DO order from knit picks, make sure you click through from this site, Amy gets credit!

Carolyn, was the blue-green yarn and red-yellow yarn that you & Renee dyed WOTA? I *think* I might have pictures of it!

Yes, it was WOTA! And also what Chris gave to me that I dyed.
