Dye Mad Yarns started in a kitchen in May of 2020 and has grown to a storefront with a team of four! We're combining a love of history, politics, quirks, camp, and absurd Americana with a keen sense of color and dye yarns that highlight the fun, whimsy, and weirdness in our inspirational subject: Ohio and the Midwest. Whether its landmarks, food, culture, politics, experiences, or cryptids, Dye Mad is a love letter to the Midwest and its eccentricities.
Our business is based in the state now known as Ohio, specifically on Shawnee, Myaamia, Hopewell, Kaskakia land. We are guests of the traditional stewards of this land. Ohio the traditional territory of hundreds of different indigenous tribes and nations, including the Erie, Wyandotte, Mingo, Shawnee, Delaware, Miami, Huron, Ojibwe, Potawatomi and Odawa. In spite of ethnic cleansing, forcible removal, unrecognized sovereignty, and outright denial of their existence, indigenous people are still here. Land acknowledgement is just a first step towards healing. You can learn more about the traditional territory where you are at native-land.ca. Learn more about LANDBACK and about returning indigenous control over their land at landback.org.
