Dyeing yarn with dry dye powder is a fantastic way to get speckles or a blended watercolor effect to your variegated yarn. How much the dye spreads out depends a lot on the fiber and dye type. Today, I am going to dye 4 different yarn blends (sock yarn and various cotton blends) with some dry one step tulip tie dye powder. https://amzn.to/2Kc4Ytv
