First Post- Kool Aid Wool
When you dye with KoolAid you first boil the water. Add desired packets, I usually add 2-3 to 6 cups of water.
Remove the pot from the heat source. Add roving making sure its completely saturated but not disturbing it by poking it too much, otherwise it will felt. Then I transfer it to a bowl to cool. During this cooling process the wool soaks up all the color from the KoolAid. The water will actually turn clear, Neat huh? But don't drink it.
Now here is my thought .........
The water turns clear right, because the wool is a natural material. Your fingers turn colors, your tongue if you drink KoolAid. What grosses me out is this; do your insides turn colors when you drink KoolAid? Is my stomach lining atomic green? Are my bowels passion Purple? I mean really? I don't know but this is my thought!
