New Stockist in East Hampton Village, New York

Despondent Dyes has gone Coastal! We are pleased to announce that Black Sheep Knitworks in the village of East Hampton, New York, has just received a large shipment of Despondent Dyes yarns. They join Stash in Corvallis, Oregon, and Wool ‘N Wares in West Linn, Oregon, in carrying our regular colorways.

Black Sheep Knitworks also has a sampling of our special Christmas color. If you are anywhere in the area and in need of some slightly irreverent, but beautiful yarn — go see them! They’re at 47 Newtown Lane.

We Set Our Colors With the Acidity of Our Bitter Tears

Offering hand dyed yarn to fiber enthusiasts. During our 2nd year of business, we will be donating $1 — for every skein sold — to charity. The designated charity for September through November 2016 is Hope for Paws, an animal rescue operating out of Southern California.

We are a cheerful mother and daughter 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.
