If I was to dye my wool yarn with koolaid before making something with it, would the dye rub off on any clothes?
I ask cause I dyed a small amout of yarn (just to see if it would work) and I really thought I had rinsed it well befor soaking it in Eucalan. But when I poured it out of the jar the water was red.

I've heard that red kool aid has a higher probability of bleeding. I've dyed wool blue shades and blue and yellow. I wrapped the yarn around a box and then tied it off so I had a nice even Skein. Then I dipped one end in one color and the other end in another color. I used Karen's (engineermama) resource for setting the dye.
