Plant Dyed by Mehlsen
Plant dyed By Mehlsen is wool that is hand-dyed with plants handpicked in nature around the western part of Jutland, Denmark by Mette Mehlsen.
Dyed on wool from white and grey sheep using Heather, Dock, Walnuts, Oak Leaves, Cochinille, Indigo and Madder.
Plant dyed yarn is magical in the sense that largely all colours and nuances match each other – it gives new possibilities to compose and creativity can flourish.
Loop is so thrilled to have these beautiful bundles of naturally hand-dyed wool.
To use in crochet, fine knitting and embroidery.
The whole palette is just so beautiful.
It is very important to bear in mind that each ball of yarn varies from the natural dyes and can not be repeated exactly.
When ordering this beautiful yarn online please bear in mind that each ball might vary a little from the images on the website as there are variences in the dyes even within the same batch that is dyed for us. Please be aware of this. They really are all beautiful but all have subtle differences.
Weight: Each ball is about 5 grams.
Length: 65-70 metres
Care: Excess plant and dye residue may occur. Careful handwash.
Hand-dyed in Denmark.
