Breaking purple food coloring into the red and blue components when you dye fiber is a lot of fun. I have demonstrated breaking Wilton’s food colorings while kettle dyeing and handpainting fiber. Today we are going to dip presoaked yarn into a simmering dye bath of Wilton’s Violet food coloring and see what kind of color gradient we end up with. Join us in this fun Dyeing Experiment by ChemKnits!
