Announcement   MYLIEFIE the home of botanically dyed natural fibres and special things ♥ PLEASE note I am a Mumma of four so my weekends are spent climbing trees and jumping in rivers and I am closed Sat and Sun so all convos sent FRI-SUN are answered on Monday :-) Find me on Instagram MYLIEFIEBUSHDYE

All My Liefie clothing and accessories are designed by me - Jemima Saunders, I use only natural fibres as my dyes are plant based and only work that way and also because natural fibres are so much more awesome than wearing a plastic bag!!!

Each piece is individually hand dyed using bush dyes (natural plant dyes) where the colour is obtained form the leaves, bark, fruit and flowers of plants. Every item is made in my home studio in the Tumut Valley, NSW, Australia.

My range of items are designed to be worn together as layered get ups or apart. The My Liefie collection is designed to be worn, the natural fibres allow for breath ability, comfort and you can also rest assured that you are buying an individual unique piece of wearable art created with the the utmost care and love. Care for the environment and care for your garment also :-)

The very nature of a handmade garment using natural fibres and uniquely dyed with its own set of leaves/flowers means that there will be variations and subtle differences within the same range and style. I hope that if you have chosen My Liefie clothes and bits you will see this as marks of its maker and something to be cherished...

========================================================
MY FABRICS:

MILKYMERINO - is a fibre made from Australian Superfine Merino and milk protein. I use a lightweight jersey knit and a heavier weight interlock. This fabric is stretchy and super soft, it is honestly hard to believe it is wool. Milkymerino is the reason I started making my dyed pieces into clothing!!

MERINO WOOL/BLEND- This is what I use for my leggings, singlets and long sleeve tops. It is 95% Australian Merino Wool and 5% Spandex which is a must when you want leggings and tight fitting clothes that snap back into shape!!

SILK NOIL- (raw silk) It has a nubby feel and a low sheen. Noil somewhat resembles cotton in surface texture, is breathable and has a lovely drape. The nubby texture of noil comes from the use of very short fibers, called 'silk noils,' to weave the fabric. When these short fibers are spun into yarns, the resulting yarns have occasional slubs and loose ends. 100% Silk.

Beautiful!! Super lux fabric and amazing hand dye. I am so happy! Thank you! Next time I will order a pair custom made as I like them to sit a bit lower, but I knew this. Once again, thank you so much!

Love these leggings! I practically live in them.. They keep there shape even after days of use (I don't wash wool clothing unless absolutely necessary) and are very comfortable. They are slightly see-through, so I wear them with long tops. There was a problem with this item, beyond the sellers control. Janina was very understanding and it was solved to my satisfaction.

About

Natural dyed clothing and accessories

My Liefie is a label designed and created by me - Jemima Saunders. I am a Mumma of four beautiful babies, wife to an incredible amazing guitar man, part time Art teacher and textile artist, painter, printmaker and drawer (phew that's a lot!!)

I live in a small town called Tumut in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains News South Wales in Australia. I have lived, sung, created, bummed and worked in 5 states of Australia and finally come back to my home town with a whole lotta bubbas and a great big bag of tricks!

Tumut is set in a valley surrounded by stunning mountains and rivers with a never ending supply of inspiration and awesome plants to help me continue to create bush dyed goodness.

I have a stunning studio overlooking the mountains and three thousand pots of various metals in another outside studio space. We moved into our dream house earlier this year which has allowed me to expand and spread out hee hee..
