Food colouring + wool =?

That Girl Who Crochets

Over the weekend I found some 100% wool on sale for $1/50g! Naturally I brought 22 balls. I decided to turn the off white yarn into something bright and funky that I could use to turn into a brilliant blanket.

You will need
* Bucket
* White vinegar
* Food colouring
* Water
* Gloves
* Microwavable container
* Microwave
* Plastic to protect where you’re working

Fill your bucket with 2/3 parts tempered water 1/3 white vinegar. Add your wool. Make sure it’s fully submerged. Let this soak for anywhere between 30 minutes to overnight.
While you’re waiting you can get your other items ready. Water down your food colouring to 90% water 10% dye.  Separate these buy putting them into empty yogurt containers or similar.
