Yarn Dyed

Yarn dyed is a method used to add color to yarns after they are spun and before they are used in the construction of a textile or carpet. Yarns can be dyed in either package or hank form and the process involves dyestuff penetrating the core of the yarn. Two common techniques include skein dyeing which can be used to produce solid colors, and space dyeing, which yields multicolored yarns.
