To make the sugar mixture:
- Measure equal parts granulated sugar and water and place in a cooking pot on the stove. I used a quarter cup of each which was more than enough. Best to use refined sugar, I only had organic sugar at home which wasn't a pure white which may have coloured the yarn a bit darker.
- Bring to a boil stirring constantly.
- When sugar is completely dissolved remove from heat and allow to cool.
- Pour into a shallow container.
