This is what happens when you buy a 23 lb bump. And these are only 6 oz braids... Just keep dyeing...

I love how Corrie takes up dye.

What dyes are you using, Bella?

So those colors are so beautiful! My favorite is the blue and red mix.

Thank you everyone!

What dyes are you using, Bella?
Good question! lol I have dharma, jacquard, ashford, and another brand who's name is jumping my memory.... I mix and match and do whatever feels right.

Lanaset, perhaps??

I've not used the Ashford dyes yet, however Dharma & Jacquard give beautiful results!

Isn't it a sheer thrill when you receive a big bump of fiber Cheesy 

A few times I've couldn't decide what colors to use so I've closed my eyes and randomly picked jars of dye and went with what ever color combo ... it worked well

Aljo!  Had to go look lol.  I don't think I used the Aljo on these tho.. the ones I have are fluorescents.

Dyeing is a lot of fun! you can get all sorts of colours, and can rarely go wrong.
And yes, giant bumps of fibre are exciting! I'm tempted to get a custom blend now...
