Dyeing Yarn with Food Coloring on the Stove

Dyeing Yarn with Food Coloring on the Stove

In partnership with http://AllFreeKnitting.com and http://www.chemknits.com I am pleased to present this video about how to dye wool yarn with food coloring and vinegar in the comfort of your own kitchen. It is possible to dye wool/acrylic blends with this method, but you need to have some animal fibers for the color to take. The method illustrated in this video is pot dyeing, a way to get a single color out of your hand dyed yarn. The dyebath contains multiple drops of blue dye because I wanted to create a deep, saturated blue color.
