  2. Oh, wow. I think that's definitely going to have to go on the list of stuff to do this summer. My kids would just flip to have something made out of yarn they dyed themselves.

  7. Hi there!
    I'm just wondering what will happen with the end product if you try to wash it? Will the food colouring wash out? I've never done it before, so I was just wondering.

    Cheers!
    Katie.

  8. Hi Katie, no the heat and the vinegar set the dye so it won't wash out. You should always wash yarn by hand though, for extra security.
