Affordable yarn dying services?

Does anyone know of a WAHM that does custom yarn dying at really affordable prices? I've found a colorway that I am utterly, completely in love with, but it is acrylic and I really want it in wool

Thanks!

If the colorway is unique to a WAHM, others will not reproduce it, if it's just from the craft store then you should be okay. If you send someone your own yarn it's usually about $10 bucks a skein give or take a few dollars. Tia from Over the Moon does custom dyeing, but she has a new website that I can't think of, um Ewe Need Color here and on HC, really just search the WAHM Wares forum and you'll find a bunch, just depends on who has a spot open right now.
