Can i use this to dye hemp/cotton blend or would kool aid work I would prefer the tea stain in reg old liptons, like the color and the yarn is more tan than white.

Kool aid is an acid dye - which works poorly if at all on most veggie fibers. Tea, on the other hand - will stain your hemp or cotton beautifully.

Tes works wonderfully on cotton. I've never used it on yarn but we used to do it all the time on cotton shirts and leotards to make a fleshish tone for dance to wear under costumes.
