Not bad for my first try. I used McCormick food coloring but mostly Wilton icing dye. This is before I rinsed it. I will definitely do this again. The warnings of wear gloves was just. NAND may out a stack of news paper or plastic bags. I got due on my foot therefore I had a nice trail in the kitchen. I had due everywhere and I could not figure out how. Glad I used non toxic dye my poor children. It is taking a while for all the excess dye to come out. Yes I am afraid of felting. I used. Blue and green the last section is like a deep emerald green. The plan is to make a nasty ( in my ms dineva voice) entrelac scarf. Even though I can't wear wool.
