This is my first time here. So here goes. I wish to dye wool and get a cranberry color. I normally just use kool-ade and similar brands. Could I take and crush up cranberries add water and vinegar to dye wool?

I have not done much dyeing with naural plant materials, so I googled "dyeing wool with cranberries" and got several good hits.  Sounds like it works.  One consideration - if it would be colorfast.....

Yeah, you may have to mordant it, and some mordants can be quite toxic and/or difficult to find. Cruise around some websites dedicated to dying with natural materials and you should get a pretty good idea of how to do it.

Good luck Cheesy

Thank you both for answering me. Maybe some vinegar would do it. I'll check on the web.
