Here's a sampling of some of the yarn that we dyed the other day. The kids had so much fun, I had to join in and do some dyeing myself!

The stuff listed in my Etsy shop has free shipping, so check it out!

These are all wonderful colors. I love the names for them, too. It's also a warning NOT to give Kool-aid to kids to drink. If it's spills on wool carpet, it's NOT coming out.

Beautiful colors, I like Miss Boo's colorway the most.
