Naturally Gorgeous Organic Cotton 4ply
Naturally Gorgeous is our range of carefully hand dyed yarns. The yarns are all from our Purely Gorgeous range. The yarns are dyed with natural colours from plants such as madder, logwood and buckthorn bark. The bright pink yarns are dyed with cochineal which is a small insect, the only non-plant dye we use. These natural dyes are very sustainable; some are foraged or grown organically here in the Gorgeous Yarns garden, or sourced ethically from growers in the UK and around the world. The natural dyes are fixed/mordanted with naturally occurring mineral salts and these mordants are of minimal or nil environmental impact when disposed of. The used plant dye materials are composted in the garden.
The yarns are dyed by hand in small batches of up to 1kg max. This ensures a high quality colour dye with gentle tonal variations which is a feature of hand dyed yarns. The natural colours work very well together and can be used in a mixed colour design as well as on their own. We recommend using 2 skeins on alternate 2 rows if you are using a single colour to prevent colour “pooling” which can sometimes occur.
If you would like a specific colour on a specific yarn base, please contact us. I can do custom dye orders for you.
Naturally Gorgeous Organic cotton 4ply is perfect for range of projects, including clothes for little ones. This cotton is 100% organic and sustainably produced.
Hand dyed with cochineal and indigo it has a gentle lilac/lavender/pink colour palette, each skein is different but all were dyed together so the base dye lot is the same.
Easy to wash, it is soft and silky, and will become a comfortable favourite, whatever you make with it. Use alone or with other yarns from our collection.
