We were lucky enough to receive two sets of photos this month showing off some fabulous hand dyed yarns produced using our Kool Aid dye kits.

The first yarns were dyed by Tracy Canham and her son Jack. Jack's is the very colourful skein on the bottom and Tracy's is the blue and brownish one on the top. The two skeins are very different and show the range of colours that can be achieved with only the six colours of Kool Aid that come with the kit.

Jack has been just poorly with chicken pox so we hope he is feeling better soon.

The second contributor to our Gallery this month was Debbie Orr. Debbie experimented using 3 to 4 colours on hanks of Merino Sport Weight yarn.

With some of the skeins Debbie applied the same colours but used at different strengths and her gorgeous results show the versatility of Kool Aid. Debbie used the stove top method to fix the colour.

We hope that you are as inspired as we are by the photos we receive for our Gallery (you are all a very talented bunch!). We love to see the beautiful colours that can be produced with hand dyeing. Please keep sending your photos so we can show everyone what you've done!

A big thank you again to Tracy, Jack and Debbie. Make sure you look at our Gallery to see all the pictures of their yarns!
