February is a good month to give yourself some love along with all the love your passing around to Gals and Pals and Vals! But it also sucks. Worst month of the year, hands down, and it knows this. That's clearly why it has 28 days. It's Winter's Last Hurrah, so to speak. So this month's colorway is an homage to those candy hearts with pastel pink and orange and purple, with a wash of grey because... well. That's how I'm feeling. Grey. Warmer days are coming, but until then, turn your focus inward and give yourself some warmth and some love until the sun comes back.
Dye Mad yarns combines a love of Ohio history, politics, quirks, and absurdism with a keen sense of color and dye yarns that highlight the fun and whimsy in our inspirational subject: Ohio and the Midwest. Whether its landmarks, food, politics, experiences, or cryptids, Dye Mad is a love letter to the midwest and its weirdness.
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.
