Space Dyed Alpaca

First...I'm thrilled b/c I knit some Aplaca up rather fine (for me) and rather regular (for me) on the Louet S10.

Second, my son and I space dyed it with KoolAid (may he never drink that...stuff. Puh puh) and I couldn't be happier with the results.

Just had to share.

How do you keep the color from fading?

Hahaha --- never have to worry about KA dyed fibre fading! I haven't done it myself, but others have done the sun-test, and found NO fading at all! Some found a little fading with bright shades. It doesn't wash out either. And what does it do to your insides??

No, we should think of this dye as permanent. As you already know!
