Today looking through the dyed yarns on this board, I found myself thinking, "I want to try this."
I don't have much money, and no space so its going to have to be cheap food dyes, either Kool Aid or Wilton's for now. Kool Aid packets are incredibly cheap, but I know I can get Wilton's cheap too because we sell it where I work and I get a discount.
I haven't seen as much about using Wilton's as a fiber dye as I have Kool Aid. Does Wilton's require acid to be added to it in order to fix it to the fiber? I haven't decided what to dye first but I think it will probably be merino.
Can anyone give me some directions on using Wilton's? Compare the two food dyes for use on wool? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
And of course, I promise to post my finished yarn!!!
