The Botanical Collection is dyed by hand with locally sourced plant materials and natural extracts. 

 

We decided for a bit of fun to offer something new. In our natural dye posts we included some small bits of thread and created some sets for those who enjoy embroidery, visible mending, embellishing knitwear or other craft prjects. There are two different fibres all of which are not divisble, so you can not divide the threads. Details are below of what is contained in each set.

HOW To LOOK After ME
I am dyed with natural dyes. I have been mordanted with alum to provide better light and colourfastness. I recommend hand washing in cold to tepid water with a ph neutral wool wash such as Martha Gardeners Woolwash. Natural dye can be ph sensitive so changes in ph can change the colour. Lay me flat in the shade to dry. Some excess dyestuff may be present in first washes.
