Announcement    Welcome to Natural Born Dyers for distinctive yarns hand-dyed with natural dyes. Please check our new delivery policies due to the current COVID-19 crisis.
.
I am a small indie dyeing business based in North East England that grew out of a natural dyeing hobby that produced fibre and yarn for my knitting/spinning-potty partner.
I want my business to reflect my ethos by being as environmentally friendly as possible. Some of my dyes are extracted from plants I grow myself or harvest locally, sometimes as part of my role as a volunteer at local nature reserves. Otherwise I use dried plant materials (except indigo which is only available as extract form due to it being unstable in dried plants)and source all my wool from British suppliers.

All wooden tools and shawl pins are turned by myself.

Thanks for looking at my shop and feel free to convo me if you have any questions about my yarn and fibre

Hi, thanks for looking at my Etsy shop. Please read our updated delivery policy before ordering.
We are a small indie-dying business set up in early 2010 to offer high quality yarns and fibres dyed with natural dyes which we extract from plants.

I aim to offer a more environmentally-friendly alternative to chemically dyed yarn and fibre. To achieve this I use dyes from plants that we grow ourselves, harvest locally from sustainable sources or purchase in dried form from UK suppliers. I use these to dye quality yarns and fibre which where possible are from British sources.

Additional policies and FAQs
Important Information.
We have shared our house with a cats and while we keep them away from the yarn and fibre I strongly recommend that you don’t buy anything from me if you, or the person you are buying it for, has a strong cat allergy.
As with all hand dyed yarn, I recommend buying as much as you need to complete a project, as it is impossible to guarantee a colour match from different dye pots. To minimise any differences when knitting, I also advise if using more than one skein to alternate the skeins every few rows.
We make every effort to accurately represent the colours of our yarn and fibre. All shop photos are taken outside in natural light to obtain as realistic a representation of the colours as possible and then photos compared to the actual yarns to ensure they are a true match. However due to differences in monitors and monitor settings the colours may appear differently on your computer. Therefore please read the colour descriptions for our yarns/fibre and compare with the photos to obtain a good idea of the actual colours. Also please be aware that some colours may appear differently under artificial light.
