About

Dye is Cast Yarns is a small indie hand dyed yarn company located in Philadelphia, PA.We specialize in artfully dyed tonal, variegated and speckled colorways for all crafts & makers. What masterpiece will you create?

It was launched in 2016 by Melissa Martinez. Melissa, who originally hails from Queens NY, has been proudly calling Philadelphia her home since 2010. She is a life-long lover of color, yarn and the fiber arts. Her grandmother taught her how to crochet, knit and sew when she was about 8 years old and her hands haven’t been idle since.

Dye is Cast Yarns are hand dyed in very small batches using professional quality acid dyes in a smoke-free environment. Yarns are dyed using a variety of different techniques and each skein is a work of art to provide you with infinite crafting possibilities. While we gravitate towards more moody, muted, colorful neutrals and rather offbeat color combos, we also love incorporating brights into the mix. You'll find that our yarns will give an extra special richness and depth to your projects as a result.

What’s our inspiration? It's mostly Gothic horror, fantasy, nature, space, the paranormal and geeky puns. We hope our uniquely colorful yarns inspire your next creation!

Crafters, YOU guys are the real rockstars! I LOVE seeing all of your projects and am humbled by the fact that I get to so something I enjoy plus provide a tool that fosters creativity.

YOU rock!!
