More about the dying process:
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, we use a gentle cold-water procedure to dye the fibers – a very natural process. Also, these mineral dyes are free from synthetic ingredients, area Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified and are often used in natural cosmetics, making this a perfect yarn for our skin!
All of these yarns are color fast when hand washed.
