Food Colouring Cushion and Rug

Researching American DIY-blogs is always really fun and rewarding. It is a great way to find new textile techniques and ideas. This is how we found out about KoolAid and the possibilities to dye animal fibers like wool and silk with food colouring. KoolAid is normally a powder that you mix with water and sugar to get a colourful lemonade. So it smelt sweet and artificial of grape, lime, and cherry in the kitchen when we did the dying of the yarn. After several experiments with different yarns in weaving and knitting the project turned into Food Colouring Cushion and Food Colouring Rug.
