Are you dyeing a solid color or multi-colored?
If multi-colored, do you want specific spacing on the final yarn? If so, dyeing the yarn might be better.
I dye both ways and do not have a true preference - it all depends on what I plan on doing with the final yarn.
It looks, from your site, that you're quite a professional. Did you make that spindle yourself? Is it hard to spin yarn?
i'd like to try it sometime.
I saw a little hand spindle yesterday, looked like a tinkertoy. My brother, who lives in Wisconsin, told me about a kind of Renaissance Fair he and his wife went to,and he saw spinners there. Hand and wheel. Wheels are too expensive for me, though.
