I want to learn how!

Oh, and what covers does it work well on? Just wool?

Does it bleed?

OK, I am not the most scientific or exact at anything I do in the kitchen, but this worked just fine ....

I put 1 package of koolaid into a small saucepan and added about 1/8 cup of white vinegar. Added water until it was about 3-4 inches deep, I used a 8-9 inch saucepan. Then I added the yarn (I was dyeing one small skein 3 different colors) that I had soaker for about 30 minutes in clean water.

I simmered the yarn until the color had been completely absorbed by the yarn (it was so neat ) then I cooled it in the pot and then rinsed it to remove all odors.

It was really cool. I look forward to doing it again (but I bough tmy koolaid at 10/$1 and I am waiting until it is that cheap again).

I have never done a finished item, just yarn, but I am sure its the same.
