Worst service ever. Luckily I paid through paypal, so after two weeks at least I get my money back

I stopped by on my way to San Francisco.

Very unique shop.
More of a place for tie dying and dying your own yarns, which is really different from the shops you see in Southern California. I found it refreshing, actually.

There is a pretty decent size selection of yarn in really unique/hard to find colors. I found Malabrigo worsted in 'Azul Bolita' which I had been searching for for what seemed like an eternity! So that made the special trip even more worthwhile!

The ladies working at the shop were really cool and down to earth, and were working on a project, and of course willing to chat about it, which is always a treat!

For the past 40 years, Dharma has been the place for dyers. If you're interested in tie-dye, batik, silk painting, or any other dye-related fiber task, Dharma stocks the materials, equipment, and tools you need, and has a knowledgeable, friendly staff to answer questions. If visiting, try to park on the street; backing out of the tiny parking lot next to the store onto Fourth Street can be challenging.

the selection is fabulous, the atmosphere is inviting, and karen, in particular is as helpful and enthusiastic as they come. i've been going there for years--leaning on them heavily for stitch and pattern guidance, or doing things (like cutting a finished piece because it was too long) that i was too afraid to do myself.

This is THE yarn store to go to if you want to dye your own yarn. They stock a great selection of dyes and some blank yarns from Henry's Attic. They also have a great selection of needles and commercially manufactured yarns.
