    Hand Dyed Yarn - Natural Dye Process

    By using quality natural fibre and sourcing ethically produced natural dyes, we are able to produce beautiful hand dyed yarn. The colours from naturally dyed yarn are enthralling. Hand dyed yarns may be repeated but they can never be exactly the same. The natural dyeing process will depend on where the dyestuff was grown, how and when it was harvested, the fibres being dyed, and the method of application we use. All our hand dyed yarn will be 'on show' at Wonderwool Wales.

    In our Yarn Shop

    Complementing our hand dyed yarn, we have handmade ceramic yarn bowls and leading brands in the knitting, crochet and crafting world, such as Cocoknits, Cohana, LYKKE, muud and Thread and Maple. Also available are knitting, crafting and crochet books and magazines from world leading publishers, such as Faire and Laine.

     

     

    Campaign for Wool

    Launched in January 2010, the Campaign for Wool brings together leading figures from the fashion industry, interior design, wool carpet manufacturers as well as the world of insulation and building.

    Since its launch in 2010, The Campaign for Wool has influenced a new demand for wool on an international scale. Its efforts have seen an outstanding threefold increase in the price farmers receive for their wool.

    FelinFach has been an official supporter of the worldwide Campaign for Wool for many years and is listed on the Campaign's official supporter's web page. FelinFach is committed to the responsible sourcing of British wool and always looking for environmentally friendly yarn. Sheep wool is a fantastic resource for all wool clothing. Because of the properties of wool, it can be used in other ways, such as sheep wool insulation for buildings, duvets and bed covers.
