Etsy Showcase Sunday – Hand Dyed Yarn

I’ve always liked the thought of dying my own yarn – I even bought 2 skeins of pure white WW cotton at the brilliant Lion Brand Store whilst on holiday in New York a few years ago. My good friend Jill of OnePinkHippo was with me, and told me you could dye yarn with Kool Aid, which sounded like magic to me! So I got these 2 skeins and Jill sent me some Kool Aid, but sadly I have never taken the plunge and actually dyed it. I really should, though I think I’ll need some more Kool Aid sachets as the stuff Jill sent me has surely gone off by now (does Kool Aid even go off?!)

Anyway, I digress. So I was swooning over hand dyed yarn on Etsy this week and decided to dedicate this showcase to some of my favourites 🙂

  1. Beautiful yarn! And I don’t think Kool-Aid “goes off” but I’ll definitely send you some more! It’s a lot of fun to dye yarns!

  2. Oooo I LOVE the look of that cloud yarn!

  3. Oooh, those pretty, delicious colors make me wanna shop for yarn again! But, I need to clear out my current stash first, my husband is already starting to give me ‘the looks’ XD
