- Please note that Indigo is different from other natural dyes - it is not soluble in water, therefore, it requires a few specific steps before it can be used for wonderful blues. There are many methods created by old nations and nowadays dyeing masters so you should be able to find information for beginners.

- If something is still unclear then please send me a letter and I will gladly help! :)


- Indigo is one of the most marvelous, tricky and yet rewarding natural dyes. Its history started thousands of years ago and it has a place in almost every culture from all over the world.



- And finally I`d like to share these Kerry Flint`s words:


"Creation of a colour as magical as Indigo is a work of love"

I recommend handwashing only: soak for an hour or few in a bucket of cool water with neutral liquid wool/silk detergent, keep agitation to a minimum (prevent felting). Reshape whilst damp and dry flat on a towel. If you want to carefully iron it once dry, use a warm-only wool setting and, for best results, place the iron on a damp teatowel. During the first wash plant dyed wool can release some color.

Be careful with strong acids and alkalines - it can damage or change plant dyed colours.

Dyeing with plants gives the most beautiful colours and I believe it holds energy of a plant as well. It goes through so many stages - picking plants in the forest, cleaning it, drying, boiling, simmering, soaking, washing... Each time colours come out at least a little bit different and that is the magic of this technology! Colors are very subtile and they all match each other. These shades are very hard to describe and don`t fit into "normal" color categories, but I am doing my best to describe it show it in photos :)
Most of my wool comes from small wool mills or local farmers. This is my way to support small busines and keep my shop environment friendly.

I gather most of the dye stuff myself in fieds and forests. I do not use endangered species and don`t harm environment in any other way. Barks are collected from fallen or legally cut (in order to keep the forest clean) trees.
Some of the plants are grown by my parents in their garden - japanese indigo, woad, madder, yew, apple trees, plum and many more.
Exotic plants or the ones that I can`t find in my local area come from farms which respect the environment and comply with organic textile certifications.
