Default dye for squirrel tails

I have a few gray and fox squirrel tails and want to tie a few crappie jigs this year. Does ayone know of what kind of permanent dyes to use to color them?
I want black, blue and purple colors.
I figure a standard L'Oreal permanent hair dye would work for black, but what about a bright blue and purple?

Try a dye called Rit, The craft called Pat Catans has it. Read the box and see what it says.

I seem to remember that RIT brand dye being sold at Giant Eagle or Tops...I believe in the household sections (brooms, mops, utensils, etc.).

Kool-aid, the kind in the little packets. read this in fly fishing and tying journel. mix with half the water I think and will make a permenent die. all kinds of great colors (flavors) and about as cheap as it gets. I will try and find the article and post. S

I have alway's used Rit Powder Dyes.
Boil it in water for a while and it will take.
It will hold the color for a long time.
