Dyeing your own yarn is not an exact science. It really is very simple DIY project.
A few basic items are needed:
1) undyed/natural yarn, I used one skein of Blue Faced Leicester which I purchased at The Constant Knitter
2) KoolAid fruit drink packets
3) Sponge or large paint brushes
4) cling wrap
When making my own hand painted yarn, I refer to Knitty’s Dyed in the Wool article.
While the BFL is soaking, I prepare KoolAid for dyeing. For this skein, I used three different flavours of KoolAid and mixed each one with 45-50mL of water.
Once I was happy with the colour saturations, I wrapped the skein in the cling wrap and popped it in the microwave.
