Dyeing wool

Well i've been having a great ole messy time dyeing wool. I've tried once before using koolaid. This time i tried Wiltons cake dyes. I just wish spotlight had a better range of colours.



First soak wool with an even mix of water and vinegar. I soaked mine for over an hour.

Forget to put on gloves.


Best to try dyeing when you have 3 wide awake children too. It's even better if they are unable to do as they are told and keep trying to pick up your little pots of dye.

nuke in micro, soak in vinegar solution once more.

ta da!
