Naturally Dyed Nonsuperwash Wool Yarn for Knitting, Crochet, Weaving and other Fiber Arts.
This yarn is as close to its natural origins as possible. No superwash treatment, just a wash to remove the grease and dirt from the fleece then combed for spinning. A great choice for those looking for a luxurious, non superwash, no nylon yarn.
Natural dyes are sources of colour derived from plants, minerals, and in some cases insects. Not only is natural dyeing a fascinating and magical experience, but it the process can have a lesser impact on the environment than dyeing with synthetic dyes, many of which contain petroleum derivatives. All skeins of Knitting Niqabi yarn are dyed with natural dyes, some foraged, and some purchased as ground powder.
