Even though I'm not a yarnie, I greatly admire all those work with fiber, especially the lovely MamanTattoo, for whom this yarn was dyed. This was my second time dyeing yarn and my first time dyeing wool (I eased in with cotton first). I purchased the yarn from Paradise Fibers and used this AWESOME tutorial. I did have trouble finding lemon-lime koolaid, so I used green food coloring and bumped up the yellow with a few drops of neon yellow food coloring added to the koolaid. Other than that, I followed the tute exactly.

And here are the results!



All hanked up:





Super easy and super fun. I want to make this for all the yarnies in my life, haha.

Thanks for looking!

Can I be a yarny in your life? Wink That looks like a very fun yarn! I bet it will work up beautifully.

Your Unicorn Farts yarn is so fun, and I think it's perfect for Maman. Very pretty!
