Tamarind is a popular flavor in Mexican candies, you probably won't find Tamarindo Kool-Aid anywhere but a US southern border state, but it makes a really nice rich brown/beige color.

Thos what natashafatale said is true, if there is a mexican grocery store in your town, you may be able to find it there as well.  I know that I can find it where I live in Oregon.

wowza! Grin

looking great! kool aid will dye tons of stuff. on all of the tutorials it says that it will only dye natural fibers, but I have successfully dyed acrylic yarns with it! YAY KOOL AID!!!! It's scary that people drink it though.

I know all the tutes say it must have natural fiber especially animal fiber.  I have a theory that you can use it to dye other fibers but you may have to change the technique to get the desired results.

I am just reading this thread -- nice yarn! The colors are so bright.

As for tamarind Kool-Aid, I found some in a dollar store, and I'm in Pennsylvania. If you don't live in the South, don't despair! Just keep your eyes peeled. Smiley
