Corn Fiber ~ The Colors are Coming!
I finally started dyeing my corn fiber this weekend. When I start off with a brand new fiber, I basically work my way from one end of the rainbow to the other. This is particularly interesting with corn fiber. Not only am I dyeing a new fiber for the first time, but I'm also working with a brand new kind of dye.
To begin with, I have dyed a nice Red, Light Yellow, Dark Orange and also a Light Orange. Next on my list, I'd like to dye a more intense shade of yellow and then I'll be moving on to the greens, blues and so on. I also plan on dyeing black and brown. By the time I'm finished, I hope to offer a complete spectrum of colors.
