Any Yarn Dyers in here?
Hello all,

I am trying to get as much information as I can get online about dying yarn.

Do you guys know any good blogges who write about their dye adventures?

I checked out Yarn Harlot and also some other site and also the tips on Knitty but all information is welcome!

So hit me with your most favorite links!

Thank ewe!

If you go to the What'cha knittin forum there will be a thread that has a link to a thread all about dying. I've got kids screaming for me or else I'd link it.

It's the koolaid thread.

i dye, BUT i have books on dying. i haven't bookmarked any blogs. if you go to blogger or any type of blog homepage and put in "dyeing yarn" in the search engine it should bring up some blogs that may explain how they do it.

the Jenla blog has some discussion about dyeing. I think one of the best links is All about hand dyeing and there is a forum there too!
