I just ran across a blog that linked to Mystical Creation Yarns (http://www.mysticalcreationyarns.com). They have some beautiful stuff!

No, it's really pretty cool...you put the yarn in a pot and then pour in several colors of dye. Or if you do it in the microwave you can put the colors more specifically on a certain part. If you do a search for handpainted on here, you'll find some more detail. The member midnightskyfibers does a lot of it.
