Rit dye contains the chemicals to dye protein AND cellulose; what doesn't get absorbed by your fabric goes down the drain. Since sock ease is wool/nylon all it needs is a dye for protein fabrics (like kool-aid). So you could use a non-wasteful dye, if you can get the right color formula.

According to the Internet sock-ease has aloe vera in it --- you'll need to wash that out for the dye to take.

A girlfriend's step-brother was deployed to Afghanistan in 2007 so we knitted over a dozen helmet liners and sent them directly to his unit. When she asked him how he liked them, he said they'd give them all to the locals!

Good luck with your project :)
