A nice sunny day and a huge supply of packs of Kool-Aid - time to do some more dyeing.
I had pre-soaked 2 skeins of sock yarn, 3-ply merino/nylon superwash, that is the base of all my sock yarn dyeing, overnight in water with just a small squirt of dishwashing soap. No acid (vinegar or citric acid) is necessary because this is already in the packets. I premixed the Kool-Aid, 1 cup of hot water to 1 packet of Kool-Aid, and I chose strawberry, peach-mango, and black cherry.
After spreading the skeins out on a sheet of plastic, I squirted the dye onto the yarn in strips, smooshing down as I went (a very technical term) to make sure the dye penetrated through.
After steaming for 15 minutes, I left the yarn to cool, rinsed out and hung to dry. What do you think?
