    I have 1400 yards of Columbia that I got at Rhinebeck last year – maybe now I will have the courage to dye it! Thanks for a great demo.

    Dyeing is so fun and easy!

    I started in Koolaid, but was disappointed by the lack of colors available.

    I’ve moved on to food dyes using vinegar to set the dye.

    I also dye in the microwave (typically roving and uncombed washed wool)

    It is so much fun to see what the color will do.

    Dyeing always intimidated me, but it seems so quick and easy with this demo. I may just have to try my hand (or tongs) at it someday!

    Fun to watch. Learned a lot. No I am a coward, I’ll leave dyeing to the exppert or brave at heart.
