Welcome to Seismic Yarn & Dyeworks, an independent dye studio located just outside of San Francisco, CA

Better Days are Coming is a rainbow of neon speckles on a hopeful blue background.

One of my goals when I founded Seismic Yarn was to create colorways that would benefit and bring awareness to mental health programs. I worked for many years as a community mental health therapist, and saw the toll racism takes on the individual, the family, and the community.  As a dyer, I had hoped to raise awareness of these issues and decrease the stigma of asking for help. Until now, this was a dream for someday, but the events of the past few months have reminded me that mental health programs – especially for black women – are an urgent priority.

This is the debut colorway of my Compassion Collection and 30% of gross sales from this colorway will be split between The Trevor Project, an organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention to LGBTQIA+ youth, and The Loveland Foundation, which provides mental health support to Black women and girls. I chose these organizations because both support mental health for marginalized and deeply underserved communities.

Donations from the Compassion Collection will continue for the life of each colorway.

This listing is for a ready to ship item. If you would like this colorway on a different base or a custom sweater quantity, please see my Dye to Order listings or message me to select your favorite base and colorway combo and I'll happily dye it for you.
