Natural Dyed-Wool

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

I haven’t actually ever dyed anything but this way looks so wonderfully earthy and healthy, and I would love to learn how do this one day! Apparently, Wool is the preferred fiber to use because it takes on natural dyes so easily. Those natural dyes, which are either Herbs, Flowers, Leaves or Roots, could be Camomile, Stinging Nettle, Marigold, Onion and Tumeric, to name a few, and which give these gorgeous subtle color variations. I found out that each time you dye this natural way, you will never get the same colors twice because the weather, the season, the maturity of the plant, its position in the sun or shade, and the quality of the water used for the dyeing is different with each plant. No chemical dye can create the beautiful variations and soft colors of these natural dyes.
