Never super washed, the yarn in this collection has been naturally mordanted to lock in the color as much as possible. Spinning oils from the mill have been removed using plant based laundry soap. We then hand dye it ourselves using sustainably harvested plants, insects & food waste. Scroll down for details on each of our hand dyed color ways.
Natural dyes are like snowflakes, each skein will vary and you should alternate skeins throughout your piece to achieve a subtle blend. Do not dry or store in direct sun. Hand wash & care for it like the heirloom it is. Natural dyes soften & fade like your favorite jeans, getting softer in hue with time. This is not a defect. It's nature.
Cutch comes from the bark of the Acacia Catechu tree and was originally from India and regions of Asia. Ours is sourced from an American company that creates concentrates.
Cindy brews a traditional fermented indigo vat to create this delightful blend of classic denim blue ranges. The Indigo is sourced from an organic grower in North Carolina. Note- Indigo and Madder both CROCK. This is Normal. Read more here:
Madder is derived from a root and has been used to dye rich reds since the 16 & 17th century, with found textiles retaining their color hundreds of years later! Originating from the subcontinent of India, Central Asia and Europe.
*While not as prevalent as Indigo, madder is a natural dye that CROCKS. What does this mean? Red fingers: Read more here
This shade of true green has been a goal of Cindy & Sherry since we started out in this botanical dyeing venture. Green is tough, it doesn't seem like it would be but obtaining a true Irish/Kelly/Mossy/Spring Grassy goodness is kind of tricky. There was a lot of dull grey to get to this glorious GREEN. Cindy achieved it with Mulberry and chlorophyll.
Dyed with plants grown on the farm. Our spent dye matter is fed to the pigs and cattle after we're done using it. That is some safe planet impact!!
Avocado pits & skins are dried to develop this gorgeous range of ballet pink hues.
