I had my sister measure out equal amount of various blue, orange and yellow dye. She asked why there was no red and I told her about the French Market Bag needing to be over-dyed.
Measure the dye, label the paper:
Carefully separated pigments- I mean, flavors:
Add the water:
Add the yarn:
And you come out with:
Who would have thought that the yuckiest, pukiest colors would yield the prettiest yarn? The green and blues were boring, I like the tawny browns and the olive green. My favorite (and the color combination I'll probably use to dye my bare sock yarn) was the ice blue raspberry lemonade, orange and lemonade. It looks really orange in the pictures but it's a tad more subtle in real life. My sister liked the berry blue and lemonade combo- it's almost a heathery olive color.
UPDATE: If you're thinking about dyeing spun fiber as well, by no means follow these "directions". I left out stuff like the water being HOT and adding a bit if vinegar. Here's the basic how-to on dyeing natural fibers with Kool-Aid that I usually use.
