I thought I'd share - I've been playing around with food coloring on wool fabric from recycled sweaters. I used a mens' wool undershirt and turned it into a rainbow dress

The possibilities are endless

I'd love to hear your feedback

neat. I have been Kool-Aid dying wool soakers. I love using food grade materials (not that I would actually drink much Kool-Aid). Makes everything feel safer, plus it smelled good.
