I'm so excited. I just made the jump from Kool-aid to Lanaset. The colors are amazing. I decided not to mix because even thought I had a color card I wanted to see the colors for myself. They are brilliant. The amount of dye that went down the drain was dissapointing, but the colors made up for it. If you've dyed with kool-aid you know that the water runs clear when you rinse. However the difference is in the texture of the finished product. It is sooooo much softer. I've posted pics on my blog. Now I'm just trying to figure out how I want to spin it. My house is 80 degrees in the hopes of drying it faster. God I love fiber. I need to find a job doing this.

Check out my WIPs on my newbie blog--Go Jersey!
