great experiment! but wouldn't you have to use a whooooole lot of kool-aid to dye any significant amount of yarn to match these colors?
Guessica - It seems so based on the amount I used, but according to other posts, I'm not so sure. Some of the lighter colors that soaked up the color really fast would probably need more, but the deeper / richer colors never soaked in all the color from the water, so they will need less. I guess - buy more than you expect to use just in case. You can always drink your leftovers. :-)
Thank you, babyduck!!!!!! I've been looking for a drink mix that produces a magenta or deep raspberry color. Which do you think fits that description? I've got to find Drink Aid! I hope you had fun with your experiments.
Sewer Rat - I think #7 (Raspberry) will probably be what you're looking for. It's worth spending 20 cents to try it and make sure. Just do the same sort of experiment I did on one or two colors to make sure before you dye a whole butt load of yarn. It was fun.
