Thanks for that. I've just dyed it and it seems to have worked. I'm not sure if it is cotton or not so I hope it isn't. *fingers crossed* I used some vinegar and water and soaked the yarn then added the food coloring and heated it up in the microwave. It's come out nice, I think -- like a tye dyed effect. Now I just have to wait for it to dry to so I can take photos of it and start knitting. I think I might take a test piece off and wash it a few times to see if the colors will run. Hopefully it won't. Only now I think I might become addicted. Watch me go out and buy a dying kit now. LOL!!!
