Dying wool with Flavor-aid..

I used Flavor-aid to dye some wool, yesterday. Making Easter Baskets..
left is Kiwi-Watermelon and Orange, Tamarindo, Root Beer and Cherry, Jamacia flavors..


It's by Jel Sert. Just like Kool-aid but more colors for dying like the browns. Smell pretty good when you are dying the yarn...

Wow, that is really cool! I love the Jamica color. I just got some dye-your-own wool and I'm really excited to see how that adventure will turn out.
And again, I love your dyeing job! Thanks for sharing!
