Felting Question
Can you felt something you dyed with Kool-Aid?
I dyed some yarn for the first time and not sure what I want to make with it. If I can felt it it may help me make a decision.

I have done that so yes you can. I used Lionbrand Fisherman's Wool in the off-white color. Dyed w/kool aid, knit it and then felted it. It'll work so long as your yarn is wool
