About The Dye Project
The Dye Project began in 2016 in the community room of the now sadly closed Happy Knits in Portland OR. It was born out of a desire to combine the gorgeous colors and variations of hand dyed processes with wooly non-superwash yarn that people will love to knit. All of our yarns have been carefully chosen to be both wonderful to work with and fabulous to wear. They do require a bit of extra care by hand washing only, but we believe they're worth it.
All colors are created in house and inspired by the world around us. Living by the beach and the forest means eternal inspiration. Most of our colors are semi-solid so that they are timeless and work well combined with the more variegated yarns from other indie dyers that we love.
The Dye Project uses a variety of bases - none of them superwash. Because most come direct from the mill, they may have seasonal or limited availability.
