Welcome to official blog for The Hand Dyed Yarn Swap. This is a fun swap where we hand dye yarn for our swap partner. Sign-ups for Round 4 are now open. We also have links for buying undyed yarn and supplies as well as tutorials for dyeing yarn.

Tuesday, July 10, 2007


I updated the list of participants to include blog links. Please let me know if your link doesn't work. Also, I could use some suggestions for places to buy undyed yarn. So far all I have in that section of links is knitpicks. Has anyone ordered undyed yarn from another vendor that they were happy with? If so, let me know so I can add them to the list.

I'm glad I came across this :) I signed up, I can't wait to participate! I love any chance I get to dye up some yarn!

Paton's Classic Wool in a white shade is good for dying. But if you want something in sock-yarn-tension... well, the only stuff I found was on ebay, I stumbled on a few cones of it in a lot. White and ready to dye.

I order some yarn from Wool Peddler that I liked really well.

Louet.com has Gems Pearl fingering wt. yarn. I used their cream coloured yarn to dye and it works great.

I don't see wool2dye4.com on your list, yet. I think I'll be trying them.
