I used my living room chair to wind the yarn into a hank.
To avoid tangling, I tied the hank in five places.
Then I washed the wool in lukewarm water with a hint of baby shampoo, rinsed it and let it soak for 15 -20 min.
(Avoid agitation so that the wool doesn't felt.)
During the time my yarn took a bath, I prepared my Kool-Aid dyes.
In this case 8 envelopes of grape flavour, 7 cherry, and 3 raspberry.
I put the yarn into the crock pot in a spiral. poured the colors in different places to get more a variegated look and let the dye
the whole thing sit for approximately 2 hours on low heat.
I took the yarn out when the water cleared up and rinsed the hank carefully.
Now my new yarn is hanging outside to dry.
