The seed of Despondent Dyes was planted four years ago when Kathy said, “I'm thinking about learning to dye yarn” and Hannah said, “Look at this dye retreat I just read about!” A whole lotta yarn and knitting later, Despondent Dyes has grown from a one-woman show to a two-woman show! We are Despondent Dyes, and we set our colors with the acidity of our bitter tears. Kathy and Hannah have been knitting and slinging yarn for more than a little while, and our favorite part is seeing our yarn knit up into your next project. And also naming the yarn—that never gets old! Sometimes the yarn comes first, and sometimes the name comes first, no need to be particular about that! Hope you enjoy our yarn as much as we do!
