I went to a knitting retreat in April, and took a dyeing workshop there. We used reactive dyes, Kool-Aid, water, and vinegar.
These two skeins of yarn I dyed at the workshop – Fox Tail and Grapes – using Drops Fabel as the base.
This braid of Finnsheep wool was dyed with three flavors of Kool-Aid – Pink Lemonade, Tangerine, and Grape. (And I’ve already spun the fiber.)
In addition to sock yarn, I’ve also been dyeing spinning fiber. To prevent felting, I’ve dyed them in the oven using this tutorial from Knitty: 120 C for an hour, then an additional 30 min in 175 C if necessary.
And I’m pretty sure I’ll be dyeing some more this summer...
