Natural Dyes

Our commitment to the environment leads us to work only with what nature provides us: natural dyes and mordants extracted from plants, minerals, barks, fruits, etc.

Each skein is hand dyed , following techniques and procedures with a very low environmental impact.

Natural colors have a natural, genuine beauty. Any plant from which we extract the dye contains more than a single pigment, so the dyeing process is simply magical; sometimes the resulting color pulls more towards one tone, others towards another, depending on the concentration of pigment that the plant or the color source presents. Replicating the result is basically impossible.

Most of our palette is composed of semi-solid colors, with subtle variations of tones (and not so subtle), sometimes with a marked worn character, from the palest, softest and neutral to the most powerful and saturated tones, as we find them in nature.

Each skein is unique.

And not only for the manual process of dyeing, but also because the plants from which we extract the dye are unique too. This is what really makes the alchemy of dyeing so amazing and, therefore, all you create with our yarns.

basic colors

 

Each fiber absorbs the dye in a different way so the tones can vary from one base to another.

In addition to the basic palette, we dye unique, unrepeatable colors, that we will not have available again.

We recommend that you always buy enough skeins to finish your project.

care

The resistance to light and washings of natural dyes is not the same that the one achieved with synthetic dyes. Therefore, we recommend you to wash your garments by hand, with a delicate neutral soap and let them dry in the shade on a smooth surface.

Also, wash your clothes only when necessary, just by simply airing the garment is enough for the fibers to regenerate.
