Natural Hand Dyed Yarn

Our yarn is 100% natural fibre including Wool, Alpaca, Mohair, Linen and Silk. The yarns are hand dyed using natural dyes only and are hand finished.

The yarn is either Welsh fleece from farms local to us in Pembrokeshire or British wool from a British spinning mill. We only use yarn of the highest quality which we then hand dye and hand finish using water from springs in our Mill for the final wash and rinse. Whilst the synthetic dyes are easier and definitely less time consuming to use, the colours achieved using natural dye make it so worthwhile. There is a beauty and depth of colour to natural dyes that become even more beautiful with age.

As everyone will know, the art of natural dyeing has been in use for centuries and it was only about 150 years ago that synthetic dyes became dominant. We use only natural dyes in our processes such as Indigo, Madder, Weld, etc and our fixing agent is Alum, a nontoxic water-soluble metallic salt.
