If I was to dye my wool yarn with koolaid before making something with it, would the dye rub off on any clothes?<br>
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.

There is a good post about Kool Aid dyeing in Diapering Resources too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

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.<br><br>
