The deep cranberry red started as a light tan. Put it in the pot with the plain purple plaid (2nd picture). Added red and simmered away.....I kept watching until it turned a really deep red. Added my vinegar and simmered another 20 minutes or so. Then shut the stove off and let it all cool down. When it felt cool enough, I dumped the water out, continued to cool, rinsed, got as much water out as I could, then into the dryer with a dryer sheet, an old white towel and a tennis ball (to help fluff)...I am loving it!!!
The bottom two pictures are what happened in the Rit green dye pot. The green is really a very deep green. Again, sorry about the pictures..... I threw in that small piece of purple plaid into the green pot as I had a lot of color left. Again, I am loving that color.
So if you have some wool you really don't like. I recommend grabbing some Rit dye, old pots and just have some fun. If you don't like the results, dye again!!!
Smiles going out to everyone! Have a fantastic day.....
