Cross-dyeing is the dyeing of a yarn or fabric composed of two or more different fibers that take up the dye in a different manner. Cross-dyeing produces a multicolored, iridescent, striped or checkered effect. Cross-dyeing is often used to create soft, misty colorings, but strong patterns can also be created using this method, depending on the fibers used.
