HandDyed Yard

HandDyed Yard

Dry Kool-Aid + a damp white boxer = a giant mess.

I got a BUNCH of natural colored wool that I niddy-noddied up into smaller hanks so that I could experiement with dyeing with Kool-Aid. I got some *great* results! Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of the gorgeous coral-red skein or the turquoise with maroon-ish bits before I gave them away as a birthday gift.

And because I'm obssesive, I've already planned what part of the front yard I can dig up for a new garden where I can harvest my own plants for making natural dyes.
