Nice thing is that a little Kool Aid and hot water will redye the item. :D

I dyed some LB Fisherman's Wool with Kool-Aid a while ago, and then crocheted in into a change purse, and then fulled it. While churning the bucket, I noticed a bit of a pink tinge from dye that had washed out, but the change purse itself is still just as vibrant as it was pre-fulling.
