Colour Blending with CombsA short tutorial on colour blending with handcombs. I love my Majacraft combs for their lightness and ease of use! If you are interested in more colour blending on combs please visit our www.fiberygoodness.com webstore and check out the Big Book of Fibery Rainbows, and the combs in our Majacraft shop! This is a fantastic, and portable way to make magical fairy fibers for spinning.

Dye Fiber in a BagA technique for quick and easy dyeing of smaller quantities of fiber (up to 4oz)
FIber: Dyeing to Hackle and WheelThe process from fibre prep through to art yarn
Hand Painting FiberHow I dye my multicoloured 'top' - unspun commercially combed fiber. I use this technique to get very specific colour placements. The important key in this is to use a rolling motion with the hand to squeeze the dye through the fiber and avoid any felting, this is much better than tapping or squashing the dye into the fiber.
