    If it's ugly, then you don't have much to lose? At worst, wash the Kool Aid out and try something else... food coloring?

    I think it'd be like when you color your hair with the stuff...it gets wet...it bleeds...all over everything [​IMG]

    Probably be better off trying berries or tea or coffee or red wine.

    I think that the problem with trying to dye acrylic yarn is that the yarn doesnt absorb the color because it is synthetic.

    But, why not try it anyway?
