comes in many beautiful colors, weights and textures. Sometimes, you can go to every single craft store
and still not find the perfect color that you need. If you are having a difficult time finding the perfect color, you can dye your own with fruit and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables that stain
, such as onion skins, grape juice, and beets make very pretty dye
, and yarn dyeing is a fun and easy craft that kids
can help with. Lion Brand Yarn has tips and recipes using various fruits and vegetables and wool and cotton yarn
. You need stainless steel pots, yarn of course, a timer, tongs to handle the yarn, and of course, a stove. the kids can help with the coloring, but adult supervision is needed around the boiling water.
It is amazing to me how the different yarn produced different color results. I would have loved to see strawberries make the list because I think the color results would be perfect for making baby blankets for a special new baby girl.
