    Very cool! What about a black top with lighter end? I'd like to make SE black on top and blonde on the bottom and some black with blue on the bottom: Is there a way to keep the black from being "dirtied" with the other colors?
    Thank you!

      The only way to do that with this fiber is to find that as an ombre color before you start (otherwise it is going to be mixed). Luckily, black is one of the easier colors to find at the roots. Just check the colors for options. :)
