Hand Painting Roving with Dry KoolAid

Hand Painting Roving with Dry KoolAid

KoolAid packets contain a mixture of food coloring, flavor and citric acid. Without the flavor you have everything needed to dye yarn once you add some heat. Normally I disolve the KoolAid into water before painting my yarn, but today I wanted to experiment with using the dry powder to dye the yarn. I can’t wait to see how this experiment will turn out!
