Carissa’s method is a great way to customize yarn that’s at least 50% animal fiber (wool, alpaca, etc.), and it will definitely give this year’s cozy cool weather projects that extra-special touch!

Note: The ingredients used in this tutorial are specifically chosen to be non-toxic and kid friendly. But, of course, when working with dyes in kitchen equipment, you should always exercise caution. If you’re concerned, you can pick up some disposable crockpot liners (like the ones used in this project), or, if you think you’ll be doing a ton of dyeing, you might want to check your local thrift store to see if you can find a good deal on a slow cooker that you can use just for crafting.
