Dyeing Resources
Post your links to dye information and supplies here! I'll get it started with what I think is the greatest most comprehensive link about dying:

Paula Burch's All about Dying

New online magazine just started called Spindle and Wheel. It has a good article about mixing your own colors.

Great resource for supplies is Prochemical and they provide directions online for most if not all of their products.
http://www.prochemical.com/directions.htm

This link is good for color basics:

http://earthues.com/ Natural dye extracts. (I interened with them for 9 months...). I only use natural dyes now, and extracts make it much easier.

http://www.prochemical.com/catalog/washfast.htm
My favorite type of chemical dyes, IMO much more light and color fast than some of the others out there.

Fabrics to Dye For has Jacquard Acid Dyes in the 8 oz jars for good prices, which is much more economical if you dye very much. The 1/2 oz jars are only $3.14. I have used these dyes for wool for quite a while and I really like them.

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.
