Craft Project: Kool-aid Dyed Yarn, Part 2--Solids
We also created solid color yarns with the kool-aid using a fairly similar process as the variegated yarn. The only difference is after we soaked the yarn in warm water and squeezed out the excess, we put it in a mason jar. Then, poured the kool-aid over it. We filled the jars about half-way to 2/3rds full with the kool-aid and then filled the rest of the jar with water to cover the yarn. I purposely did not shake the jar originally so that the bottom would be more saturated with color.
And here are our solid color skeins of dyed yarn:
And ALL of our dyed yarn wound into center-pull balls ready to use:
