hey, this is for you business owners and designers out there--
I'm starting a handpainted yarn business and have been focusing on "socially conscious" yarns (bamboo, soy, wool when I know the sheep, yarn from women's collectives, etc) and have been researching natural dyes. The company that produces the dyes I want requires a minimum order of $350 for the first wholesale order and not only do I now have that, I don't need that much dye (enough for about 500lbs of fiber)!
Anyone interested in joining me for a co-op? I can send a price list and the company's info if you are!
