Zen Warrior

While studying for her Bachelor's Degree in Apparel Design at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, Tracy Lea Landis worked for a small collective of hand-weavers in Wisconsin. They needed someone who could dye large skeins of yarn in custom colors to match swatches from interior designer's clients......
Experienced in working with dyes on wool, Tracy saw a pile of white wool berets for sale at a thrift sale one day and decided to put color on them. And that is what she does now: Zen Warrior Berets! The berets are round wool "paintings" that you wear on your head, with colorfast dyes, of course!
Tracy sources her berets through brokers in New York. Having purchased berets from many countries,  the Czech berets offer the quality needed for her work.
