Dying Yarn
I'm interested in learning how to dye yarn. Can anyone suggest some books for me to buy? Can anyone suggest a website for me to buy undyed yarn?

KnitPicks has some good untreated yarn in both regular and super wash. And there was a great article called Yarn to dye for in this season's Knitty.

Hope that helps you.

Cheryl, can you make a "Dyeing Resources" sticky thread under the "Spinning Resources" one? I'm sure a lot of people would find that helpful! :D
