Natural Dyed Yarns straight from my garden are now available

Posted on


Something I’ve wanted to do for a long long time is colour yarn with plant dyes straight from my garden. With a little help from local natural dyeing expert Ruth from the Loft Space in Slaithwaite and lots of reading I have now produced my 1st batch of natural dyed yarns. I’ve created them into approx 25 gram mini skeins so you can use to add “the feminine touch” to your knitwear. These muted subtle colours also work together really well so would look good in any colourwork project.
Personally I really loved using plant stuff that was ready to go on the compost heap and using it to dye my yarn. Loved keeping things environmentally friendly.
Win win situation.
Researched and all these should be colour fast.


The mini skeins are available from my web site at £4 each or £20 for 7 (that's less than £3 each if buying all shades).
The plants used in the dyeing process are listed with each shade.
