Product Description

Details

These fair trade tops have been prepared by Mapuche artisans from Southern Chile. Working in their own homes, the women carefully dye the carded wool using plants and minerals that they collect in the locality.

Wool is dyed in small batches using fresh plant material. Please therefore expect some variations in colour. We believe that this enhances the unique beauty fo this naturally dyed product.

Whilst every effort is made to keep the wool separate from the plant matter, there may occasionally be small amounts of debris in the wool. We recommend gently tesing out the tops before spinning.

Please expect some colour to bleed from the wool with the first wash. This is simply residue from the plant-dyeing process and does not affect the overall colour fastness of the wool. 

The wool used is a merino/corriedale blend from Chilean Patagonia.
