I love finding new fibre types and this one did not disappoint. Corn fibre has a very interesting feel, at least I thought so. When I was spinning this fibre, it felt a bit like corn starch as I ran it through my fingers. I may have been imagining things just knowing that the source was corn.

Dyeing this proved to be quite an adventure. It does not take dyes like other plant fibres. I had to use dyes made specifically for synthetics. Once done, the colour is gorgeous in this bright bubblegum pink!
