    $\begingroup$ You should probably change the title to distinguish this riddle from puzzling.stackexchange.com/questions/15855/… $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Jun 2 '15 at 10:54

    $\begingroup$ To the close-voters: admittedly the titles are extremely similar, but the riddles are not the same and the answers are different. I've voted to reopen. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Jun 2 '15 at 19:32

Could be

rope.

Some are long, some are short.

How long is a piece of string?

Some colored, some natural.

Coloured ropes and those made of natural fibre.

Some filthy, some clean.

Ropes used for mooring a ship are usually filthy, but rope can also be clean.

I think the riddle is "too broad". Hair also fits, as @PirateSoul said.

  • $\begingroup$ not a problem at all, I'm used to Stackexchange, but just 'discovered' the puzzling section. I'm usually on Android or Stack Overflow :), Thank you tho! $\endgroup$ – Paramone Jun 5 '15 at 7:09
