My results so far..

Okay so I switched the dye source.  I was going to do koolaide but was not happy with the color choices.  So I did some more research and found information on using Wilton icing dyes. 
Soaked  wool in cool water and vinegar before dyeing

Water and Dye (use a tablespoon of dye)
Wrap in plastic wrap and nuke for 2 minutes
Drying

Now off to dye the silk...... :)

Update:  The silk took the dye and left me with rich deep colors!  It does have a tie dyed effect in some areas, but I really, really like the outcome.
