Knit mitts and self-striping socks from wool hand dyed with Kool Aid by Ursi Neuenschwander from Switzerland

Ursi Neuenschwander from Switzerland sent us this picture of the fabulous yarns she dyed with one of our Kool Aid Funky Dyeing Kits. As well as making the mittens from the yarn and pattern supplied with the kit Ursi knitted these fabulous self-striping socks using some 6-ply sock yarn which is 75% wool and 25% synthetic content. Ursi was pleased to see how well it took on the Kool Aid dye even though it was not pure wool. Ursi made the skeins then dyed around a quarter of each with one color and when knitted into socks the stripes naturally formed. Ursi used the natural colour of the yarn to form one of the stripes by leaving a quarter of each skein undyed.
