A method of coloring fabrics made from more than one kind of fiber
, for example, a wool
blend. Each fiber
in a fabric designed for cross-dyeing takes a specific dye in a different color or in variations of a color. A fabric that is crossdyed is more than one color. Cross-dyeing is often used to create heather effects (soft, misty colorings), but strongly patterned fabrics can also be achieved, depending on the fiber
s used in the fabric.
