You will need dye conducive for cellulose fibers. You can order some from Dharma Trading.

Or you can get some Rit dye from the local store. Rit is a combination of dyes for both cellulose & protein fibers so there is a LOT of left over dye in the dye pot. When you rinse your yarn, be sure to rinse until clear!
