Description

Dyeing and hand-painting yarn and fiber is easy, inexpensive, and non-toxic with unsweetened Kool Aid. Kool Aid contains citric acid, so no vinegar or other mordant is needed to fix the color.

There are several different ways to use Kool Aid to color yarn or fiber, for example: soak yarn in Kool Aid Solution; use a squeeze bottle to apply different colors to section of yarn; sprinkle some of the dry powder on damp yarn for special effects, and more. Great for everyone from kids and beginners to experienced dyers.

You can find detailed instructions and pictures of the process by searching online, along with examples of the colors the different flavors (and different flavor combinations) make. Flavors/ colors available in this listing are:

Arctic Green Apple - light green
Cherry - red
Grape - purple
Lemonade - yellow
Mango - light orange
Orange - orange
Pineapple - gold
Tropical Punch - red
Mix - assorted, 5 different colors

One packet is enough to dye approximately an ounce of yarn (use less for less saturated or more for more saturated colors). Sold in same-color sets of 5. You can order one set or several; just be sure to indicate which flavor(s) you want.

PLEASE NOTE: If you're ordering more than two sets, please contact me for an accurate shipping quote.

I love these needles! Thanks for sending them out so quickly. (Since this was an international order they did take about ten days to arrive. Just FYI to future buyers.)
