Thanks so much, Cyndi!
I am quite certain what I experienced with the yarn was my fault, not the yarn, and due to its "mistreatment," which did involve extreme heat and sometimes moisture at times, among other things.
I did try it last night for the heck of it and used 3 grape Kool-Aid packets in the pot and I am *thrilled* with the results!!!!! And the dye is now colorfast after it was completed, evidenced by the post-dye washing.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
