Kool-Aid color?
I want to dye some yarn so it comes out a nice raspberry color. The brighter the better. Anyone have any flavor suggestions to get that color?

Thanks,
ayla

It does, but what's the difference between the left side and the right side? Did I just miss that?

The beginning yarn color is the differnce.The top piece of yarn is the natural color , on the left it is an off white and on the right is more of a darker grey khaki color.

Have fun dyeing your yarn!

You can see the starting color of the yarn at the top. The left side is all the colors on cream yarn. The right side is the colors on gray yarn.

Yeah, and I don't have a lot of yarn to play with. I'll get a couple of different colors and see what I can make out of it. Thanks, everyone, for your help!

Just found this today... great pics of koolaid dyeing

More tips and techniques

And here, with a cute kitty picture

Directions for self striping yarn with a REEEEEAAAALLLLLYYYYYYY long hank.

I don't remember seeing either of these links posted before on the forums (but we know how much I use the search feature, so....). Thought they would be helpful for people who hadn't done it before... i'm going to try my first dye job this weekend, I think :-) [/quote]
