These are hand dyed tapestry wool yarn kits. The yarns that I use for these kits are organic wool, no nylon, no chemicals, just pure natural wool. The yarns are all dyed using natural plant dyes.
The wool yarn is similar in weight to Appleton’s tapestry wools and are suitable for embroidery, tapestry work, needlepoint, crochet, fine knitting or nalbinding. These yarns are sold through my Web Shop and also on Etsy and Ebay.
Tapestry Yarn Rainbow Packs
Each skein is approx. 10 meters in length
10 skeins of naturally plant dyed rainbow colours per pack.
Tapestry Wool Yarn Skeins
The plant dyed Tapestry wools are now also available for purchase in single skeins.
Please check my Web Shop for the latest stock.
The natural dyes are created using plants, leaves, flowers, tree barks and minerals that have been used and tested through the ages. Naturally dyed colours fade gently yet remain beautiful.
Some of the dye plants that I use to create the many shades of the rainbow are:
Reds: Madder root, Brazilwood, Cochineal
Yellows: Weld, Fustic, Dyers Greenwood, Flame of the Forest
Blues: Indigo, Woad, Japanese Indigo
Purples and Greys: Alkanet, Logwood
I love to dye rainbows of colour using natural dye plants. These tapestry yarns are the results of my experiments. Natural dyes produce colours that are unique yet harmonious with each other. Not to be repeated. I hope that you will enjoy creating something new with the yarns as much as I have enjoyed making them.
I will be adding more naturally dyed yarns each week, so please check back for new plant dyed colours.
Please note that hand dyed yarns take up dye at different rates, so may have some colour variation throughout the skein, creating a unique look to the yarn. Some natural dye residue such as Indigo may rub off onto your hands.
I am updating this website on a regular basis with new hand dyed yarns, handwoven items and other products. If you would like to keep informed of the latest developments, please Subscribe to my new Newsletter.
