Gorgeous handpainted yarns are sold in stores for a premium, so I am happy to present this tutorial on handpainting yarn so you can create your own stunning colorways. You will need wool yarn, vinegar, food coloring, plastic wrap, a microwave, a microwave safe plate and some containers to mix dye in. Rubber gloves are recommended if you want to avoid dyeing your hands as well. If you have ever tie dyed a T-shirt then transitioning to handpainting your own yarn will be a piece of cake!
