The Botanical Collection is dyed by hand with locally sourced plant materials and natural extracts. Looking for a yarn that celebrates wool for your colourwork and steeking projects, this is perfect. There is a lovely crispness to this yarn which partly comes from it having not been treated. It takes the colour fabulously. So if your needing some colours for a lovely woolly cardigan, perhaps add this to the mix. There is a very limited amount of this yarn as we test different bases with natural dyes.

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.
