Dyeing Fiber

I think that I have finally figured st the trick to dyeing fiber. I have spent the last week experimenting with different colors. I use Kool Aid and vinager. First I fill a large pot with warm water. I wet my wool, then add some vinager and a couple packets of Kool Aid to the pot. I add the wool, set the temperature to simmer, and leave it for a couple hours. When it looks like most of the color has been absorbed, I turn the burner off, and let the water cool to room temperature. The water should be clear. I drain the water, rinse the wool (in water the same temperature the wool was in), and hang it to dry.
