I like to use Koolaid and food dye. I had photos loaded onto a webshots album but the jerks shut down and switched to something new and all my nicely categorized photos are gone. Where they are on our storage hard drive is a guess and I don't want to search at the moment.

If you do a search you should find several blogs with tuts and in the sticky thread there is a koolaid color chart.

The Kool-Aid color chart is pretty awesome.

I do the vinegar+warm water+sun to dye my wool.

I like the look of these and they don't pool as much but I am a little more limited with the colors that I can put together...

I don't have pictures I can readily post but depending on the color scheme, I really love to kettle dye. It creates such a beautiful effect.
