We Set Our Colors With the Acidity of Our Bitter Tears

Who is Despondent Dyes?

We are a cheerful duo seeking a creative outlet for our despondent alter ego. Dead serious about color and knitting, but we tend to be a touch irreverent about almost everything else.

We are committed to ensuring that our words, actions, and business practices create a welcoming and safe environment for ALL members of the crafting community.


If you have questions, comments, or concerns about our mental health, you can reach us at despondentdyes@gmail.com. We will try to get back to you as soon as possible in between sobbing into our glasses of wine and laughing at new names for yarn. We are also on Instagram at @despondentdyes.
