Dyeing your own yarns at home has taken on a life of its own. Many are using vegetables and other processes to achieve incredible, organic results that give their creations an original effect.

You won’t believe how easy it is to dye your own yarns and today we share a process that involves Kool-Aid and your microwave.

Since so many of our community are mad yarnies, we were excited to discover this inexpensive idea and the results are amazing.

We found the idea on a website called Lafiabarussa and we were gobsmacked by the beautiful and vibrant colors that were achieved.

Here’s what you’ll need for this project
