Can you dye 100% cotton?  I am verrrry new to this & have some great cotton that would be awesome to dye if I could. 

Is there any fiber you can't dye?

You can dye cotton.

It's just not as "easy" to dye as wool is, in the sense that you can't use kool-aid, food coloring, etc.

They make specific dyes for cotton fibers that you can get.
