After doing a bit of Kool Aid dyeing with yarn, I want to try something else. What are your favorite brands/methods for dyeing yarn? Thanks!

I'm a huge fan of the Wilton's icing dyes.  The colors are so vibrant!!

I actually did a "tie-dye" batch a couple weeks ago.  The camera isn't working too welll, but I'll take a pic as soon as I can.  I used a small amount of blue dye to make a nice aqua-blue color.  Then I tied rubber bands at certain places in the skein and overdyed it with purple.  The effect is amazing!

I used some of the gaywool dyes that I'd bought from knitpicks but now they stopped carrying them.  I love them (because they don't smell fruity unlike kool-aid) and I want to buy some more acid dyes (not neccessarily gaywool) but now I don't have an online source.  Can anyone recommend some?
