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.

Returns & exchanges
I will accept returns of knitting needles, crochet hooks, spinning equipment, and yarn if the items are unused and unopened. If the return is a result of my error (e.g., I sent you the wrong size crochet hook). I will exchange or refund the item, and you will not be responsible for return mailing costs. If the return is not a result of an error on my part (e.g., you decided that hook just wasn't what you really wanted), I will refund your purchase price after you mail the item back to me (at your expense) and I have received it.
I cannot accept returns of spinning fiber or, for customs reasons, items or orders valued at over 22 euros.
I welcome custom orders, suggestions, ideas, and discussion! I will gladly communicate with you, answer questions, and do my best to keep my customers informed about when items are sent, the status of their orders if I'm waiting for supplies, or any other relevant information.
