Hand Dyed Yarn - Natural Dye Process
The colours from naturally dyed wool 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. Browse through our hand dyed yarn selection and know that your knitting yarn project will always be one of a kind, part of the beauty of a handmade product!
