I'm going to have to do this a bit more carefully and photograph each color on it's own but for now...here it is!
I present the aguas frescas line of kool-aid dyed onto wool roving. The number one feature that differentiates this series to the regular kool-aid colors I think is that these are sunset colors. In real life, these are very bright. When I dyed, I aimed for medium tones, not too saturated and not too washed out.
Both of these yellows (pina and mango) are golden and warm. I am happy to see this since the only other yellow I have from kool-aid, lemonade, is cold and greenish. I had been using wilton's buttercup for yellow and it's great to have two more options. The mango is especially pleasing.
The tamarindo is interesting. It doesn't come even close to any other color in the kool-aid palette, since it's basically beige. I'm interested in experimenting with this color, to see how dark it can go and also blending it with other colors to mute them.
The jamaica is the closest to the usual kool-aid colors but it's unique too. The intensity is high and the saturation happened immediately. It's a rich, bloody hibiscus dye.
Finally, I am confounded by the mandarina. The color on the package gave me the impression it would be a darker orange than it is. I don't know what to do with it except use sparingly.
Keep in mind that the colors may not be accurate on your monitor. They aren't exact on mine either. But I think you get the general idea.
In more kool-aid news, I did pick up some flavors I didn't have before and I plan on giving them a go as well. This includes changin' cherry (blue!), strawberry lemonade and strawberry kiwi. I think the latter two are both pink and the possibility exists that I may NOT dig into those right away.
What's next? I spun up the aguas frescas samples into a thick-thin singles yarn. I will show it off after I set the twist, of course.
