This 100% Merino wool is dyed using natural mineral-derived colours.
These dyes are made from mineral rocks that are ground into a fine powder and used to make my pigments. These same minerals are used in mineral makeup, so this is a perfect yarn for our skin.
These yarns are variegated, so that some of the natural background color of the yarn remains visible, adding depth to the garment.

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 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.
