It is extra hot here in Northern Pennsylvania this week, so I thought it would be a good time to try ice dyeing some wool yarn. I mixed one packet of Kool-Aid with 1/2 cup of water and then froze the mixture in ice-cube trays overnight. The next day, I soaked the wool yarn in a water/vinegar mixture
for about 20 minutes and then drained off the excess water. I placed the frozen dye cubes on top of the yarn, covered it with plastic wrap, set it outside and let the sun do the rest! (I did pop the yarn in the microwave for a minute just to make sure it was heat set enough, but I'm not sure it was really necessary.) As you can see, lemonade, pink lemonade, orange and cherry Kool-Aid ice-cubes make a very pretty variegated pink yarn! I think I will be doing more ice dyeing this summer!
