About DittanyDyes

Sales 58
On Etsy since 2018

Dittany Dyes creates hand-dyed yarns inspired by books, magic, and nature.
We've been obsessed with knitting for years and decided to make that obsession a full-blown project for ourselves.

The name: Dittany Dyes comes from our love of the world of Harry Potter - dittany is a real-life plant that has magical healing qualities in Harry Potter. As we find knitting to be a healing practice for ourselves, and the fact that dittany is known for its wooly leaves, Dittany Dyes came to be.
