FelinFach uses only natural dyes. The colours from natural dyes are enthralling, each will depend on where the dyestuff was grown, how it was harvested, the fibres being dyed, and the method of application.

Hand dyed yarn, dyed with natural dyes at the FelinFach Dye Studio - we do not use synthetic or dye colours.
