Microwave-Dyeing Wool

I made a bunch of felted wool ornaments last fall. So when my friend Mary was given a package of white wool roving, she shared it with me. Thanks Mary! The next day Nikki Wheeler posted a blog about Food Color Yarn. I had heard about dyeing wool with Koolaid and decided to try it.

Here is the finished wool dyed with Tropical Punch Koolaid.

Last year I needle-felted wool roving onto a purchased felted wool purse in the style of Artgirlz.

The small purse below is made with felted wool sweaters. The patterned sweater in the background was given to me by Pat. It's on the back of the purse which was made for her daughter.
