These are naturally plant dyed Sashiko threads. The yarns that I use for these kits are pure Egyptian cotton, or linen/bamboo blend threads. The yarns are all dyed using natural plant dyes.
These yarns are sold through my Web Shop and also through my Etsy shop.

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.

The naturally plant dyed Sashiko threads can also be ordered in larger skein sizes by custom order.

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.

Due to changes to International shipping rules on taxes, as a small supplier, I do not have the infrastructure to comply with duties and taxation rules. Therefore my Web Shop is only open to UK customers.
I don’t list all of my products on Etsy or other platforms to save on listing fees. Please contact me if you would like to place an order via Etsy and I will add a special listing.
