Dancing Leaf Dyeworks artisan yarns are chosen by Dalis with an eye for variety and texture. Merino, silk, cashmere, mohair and cotton and combinations make up her base yarns. She hand dyes all the yarn in her dye 'lab' on the farm, using wash fast acid dyes to achieve her artistically arranged colors, blending one to another in a pleasing palette of color. Yarns are from a smoke free environment.
