I scored about 900 yards of Bainin Aran wool yarn for free!!! It is an off white color and I would like to dye it. I don't plan on doing a lot of dyeing in the near future, so would like this to be a cheap and easy project. Is Koolaid my best bet so I can avoid having to get mordants/fixers? Also, I'm having a hard time understanding directions I've seen for winding from a ball/skein to a hank. Any tips there?
