Dying Silk with Kool-Aid

My mom used to use Kool-Aid to dye wool.  I remember how awesome the house would smell when she mixed up a batch.  We dyed some silk scarves today and they turned out lovely!  Noor was amazed, as was I, at how quickly (within a minute) the silk soaked up the dye.

First, we soaked the silk in hot water and vinegar to prime it to accept the dye
