Australian Grown, Dyed & Processed
Only ecologically friendly dyes & mordants are used. Dyes are extracted by hand from responsibly harvested & ethically sourced plants. Colours extracted from plants - leaves,blossom & bark - give different colours depending on the season,soil,location, growing conditions.
Unique Artisan hand dyed fibre
Every aspect of the dyeing process is approached patiently and in partnership with Mother Nature. Nothing is rushed in this traditional process. From the sheep & alpacas munching their way through to shearing time, to seasonal foraging & harvesting botanicals, all the way to the alchemy of the dye pot. Every colour has its season.

Our Core Values
Keep it as natural as possible.
Our colours are inspired and provided by the nature. We use ancient, traditional recipes that have stood the test of time. While even artificial dyes will fade over time with light and washing, we look to medieval tapestries and ancient textiles as our guide for lasting colour.
The Six Seasons
We follow the six Australian Indigenous seasons when harvesting and foraging. The colours derived from plants differ according to the season, soil, water and climate conditions. Therefore each plant, each season ensures unique and truly Australian colours.
Eucalypt, mint, rosemary, madder, fennel, coreopsis, Japanese indigo and dandelion are just a few of the scents we enjoy while we work. The alchemy of water, plant and Mother Nature's artistry release a truly amazing colour palette.
Cochineal and Lac - extracted from insects and resin. These colours were highly valued in the ancient world and the methods of extracting the colour remains unchanged.
Dip dyeing in two or more dyepots allows us to vary colours. Here, yarns have been dyed half with rosemary,coreopsis and cochineal and now being dipped in a second dyepot of Marri leaves
