I just saw an episode of Sewing with Sue Hausmann today and they should how to dye with Rit dye. I've scanned through some of the postings here at Crochetville about dyeing. Is there any way to dye acrylic yarn? If I have to use a natural fiber, it can only be cotton (I have a bad allergy to wool). Does anyone know where I could buy cotton yarn cheaply? Thanks for any and all help.

Silk and nylon dye very well. You can Kool Aid dye them. Also, look for blends. Acrylic that's blended with fibers that do dye well can produce some interesting effects.
