I dyed the alpaca yarn yesterday using two packets of black cherry kool-aide and some instructions I found on Knitty. The alpaca didn’t take the dye as well as I had hoped, especially considering the concentration of the dye and the fact that I nuked it three times. Maybe it didn’t soak long enough? But in was sitting in the water for several minutes before I added it to the dye bath.
Oh well, it’s not bad. I don’t think the lack of saturation ruined it, or anything. Either way, I’ll have to blend it with something else in order to make anything out of it.
