this tangle of colour is 400g of wool dyed with KoolAid – a drink powder from America that has a double use as a dye for animal fibres ( inicluding human hair should you fancy a new look!) I’ve been playing around with it for a while now, and took the plunge to dye a whole load! I used 5 sachets on this lot – pink lemonade which gave the pale candyfloss shade, black cherry – the deeper pink, blue lemonade the pale aqua and blue berry the turquoise, and grape for the purple.

and here it is de tangled, balled as a WIP. I’m quite pleased with how this turned out, nice soft spring colours, the knitting up is pretty fast so the next stage ought to be posted soon enough;-)
