Being a brand that is deeply rooted in sustainable practices we have decided to explore the possibilities of colour using botanical dyes. We will be using a soft and durable merino wool blend for this process. Both the merino wool yarn & flora used is sourced from South Africa, keeping all raw materials local & seasonal.

Why are we doing this & what are the benefits?

  1. Biodegradable leaving no harmful waste on our planet. This preserves the environment long term.
  2. Nontoxic meaning that this form of dyeing is not harmful to human beings, animals and plants.
  3. Vibrant & Pastel colours, botanical dyes offer a wide variety of beautiful colours in darker to light shades.
  4. Nonallergic, no chemicals means that no skin allergies or irritations will occur. Especially on children or people with sensitive skin.

Using botanical dyes with knitwear is a new & exciting journey for us and we look forward to sharing the process with you.
