These beautiful wool scarves have been woven in Ireland from the finest quality merino lambswool and hand-dyed using colour extracted from plants.
The scarves are woven from Donegal yarn and prepared for dyeing through a process known as scouring which removes any oils or waxes from the fibre. I then soak the scarves in a natural mordant solution which helps the dye bind to the fibre and increase colour & light fastness.
After the scarves have been scoured and mordanted, I prepare the dye baths from pure plant extracts and dye each scarf individually. Using a combination of rainwater and plant-based ingredients I dye all our textiles without the use of any harmful chemicals or synthetic ingredients, making our textiles truly eco-friendly. These hats have been dyed over many days to achieve the colours you see.
All our pieces are washed with an eco-friendly detergent before carefully labelling & packaging in recycled or FSC paper products. Making everything we offer as environmentally conscious and considerate as possible.
Due to the nature of plant dyes, this piece may come with small irregularities which add to the beauty and uniqueness of each piece.
