Washing Hand Knits Dyed with Food Coloring

Washing Hand Knits Dyed with Food Coloring

One of the most frequent questions I get on this channel is, “How color fast is yarn dyed with food coloring and vinegar?” Well I am happy to finally show you what happens when you machine wash a swatch knit with yarn handpainted with food coloring and set with vinegar in the microwave.

Please note that the yarn used in this video is machine washable (25% nylon, 75% wool). Please check the yarn’s care instructions before attempting to wash it in a washing machine or you risk felting your project!
