The Dyes

Natural dyes produce some of the most beautiful and vibrant hues..  Extracting and applying those can be complicated and time consuming but when applied correctly will be colour fast and stay vibrant as long as synthetically dyed product.

All the yarns are pre prepared with a mordant which promotes a stronger colour but also guarantees wash and light fastness of my hand dyed fabric and yarn.

Not all plant matter is possible to dye with.  Some are not light or wash fast no matter how many mordants you use. I only use plants and natural dyes that have proven strong light and wash fastness such as Walnut, Cochineal, Cutch, Goldenrod, Madder to name a few.  These and combinations of form a strong bond with the yarn and on the assumption that you care for your yarn as recommended, will maintain its colours as well as any commercially dyed item.
