In case you noticed a lack of posts, last week was a black hole. With the power out, the internet out, then the water being undrinkable…..it was the week that never existed yet never seemed to end. Now, on the flip side, we’re having temperatures in the high 70s, as opposed to -2˚. You just never know in Texas! And speaking of Texas, I’m so thrilled to tell you about a Texas dyer today, based in Dallas: Chrysalis Yarn.
Chrysalis Yarn is dyed by Melinda (aka Mindy) who has a beautiful eye for color!
Mindy dyes Chrysalis Yarn on a variety of bases, including…

Edith Patch Sock – Fingering (80% SW Merino/10% Cashmere/10% Nylon)

Chrysalis Yarn has a great website where Melinda’s yarn is sold. Be sure to follow Melinda on Instagram to see what she’s dyeing and adding to the shop.
Ease of Shopping
The online shop for Chrysalis Yarn is super easy to use and navigate. Melinda also offers kits on the website for popular patterns.
Shipping costs when you order from Melinda are very reasonable. And shipping is super fast!
As you know, I love supporting independent dyers and local Texas dyers. I first found Chrysalis yarn on social media but really enjoyed getting to know Melinda when she did a virtual trunk show for my LYS. And let me assure you that her yarn is just as beautiful in person as on her site.
If you’re looking for some gorgeous yarn, check out Chrysalis!
