Over dye w/ kool aid
So I got a pink plain ole sweater from Goodwill. 100% wool from J Crew (I think). I unraveled it, washed it, and over dyed it with Kool aid. THe purple, red and green came out pretty good but the blue, not so much. I mught even try a lighter dose to see if it blend with the pink a little.
