Dyeing your own yarn can literally change everything. Instead of hunting for the perfect shade, you can create it with your own two hands. Pretty amazing, right? But before you go all color crazy, there are a few things you should know.

Hand-dyed yarns are a joy to work with because they're totally unique. But that gorgeous DIY quality can also present its own set of challenges.

So you've finally finished knitting that monochromatic sweater, but when you hang it up you suddenly see the bottom of your sweater is a completely different shade than the top! We've all been there. And there's one culprit behind this pesky issue: skeins from different dye lots.

We are ALL aboard that ombré bandwagon. But rounding up tons of yarn colors to create a perfect fade? Not so much. That's why we love dip-dye. Just knit or crochet your fave basic hat, dip it, put it on, and look ombré-dorable. Seriously, it's that easy.
When we covered how to hand dye animal fiber yarn like wool and alpaca back in January, several Bluprint members had questions about hand dyeing cotton yarn, too. Bluprint to the rescue! Hand dyeing cotton yarn —and any other yarn for that matter —gives you an endless rainbow of colors that you may not be able to find in your local yarn store. Grab those blah-hued hanks and let's talk about hand dyeing cotton yarn to turn it into an artsy fiber masterpiece!
