More about the dying process:
These yarns are dyed in my family-run dye-works in Tuscany (Italy). This dying method produces a variegated effect, so the natural background color of the wool remains visible. To make these colors, mineral rocks are finely powdered and mixed with natural resins. To preserve the properties of the minerals, I use a gentle cold-water procedure to dye the fibers – a very natural process. Also, these mineral dyes are free from synthetic ingredients and are often used in natural cosmetics, making this a perfect yarn for people with sensitive skin. All of these yarns are color fast when hand washed.
