I have a question about dyeing cotton yarn on a cone. I would like to dye a white cotton yarn on the cone with a dark value, a medium valu and a light value color to create my own color ombre yarn. Could I use fabric dye in a squirt bottle to create the areas where I want the dark value and two other bottles of a more diluted dye for the medium value and the light value areas? I know the colors will bleed into each other and that is what I want the colors to do. Right now I am using an ombre greenball that has a light shade of green, a dark green, and a cream that is almost yellow in color. It isn't working up like I had hoped it would.
