Dyeing experiment results..

Well, I dyed some yarn to try to recreate the results with a larger amount of yarn (not just 2 grams). So, I multiplied the amount of dye by how much yarn I wanted to dye each color. I figured since I had a 100 gram ball to dye, I would use four colors and so I was dyeing about 25 grams per color. This means that I used 12.5x the dye as I used for a 2 gram sample.

This is done with food color only, so I am not sure if you can recreate the colors with kool-aid yet.

The colors are very much like the samples! YAY!
