Get to Know

Desert Vista Dyeworks is owned by Susan and Doug Hayes of Wittmann, Arizona.

My mother and grandmothers taught me all types of needle arts when I was young. Throughout the years I have gotten addicted to quilting, needlepoint, and sewing. For the past six years, I have been concentrating on knitting. My work is very stressful and I find knitting intricate cabled or lace patterns takes my mind off of the "noise" of the day.

Recently I have embarked on a journey that has taken me to the world of hand dyeing yarn. I have always had a "thing" for gradients and soâEUR¦..Desert Vista Dyeworks Gradiant Yarns were born!

Currently I an dyeing yarns individually through a very labor intensive process that is outlined on my blog. Lace, Fingering and Sock yarns are now available in mono gradiant colorways (six tones of one base color.) In the future, duo, trio and secto gradiants will be available.

Custom orders are always welcome!
