Chroma Nima's creator, Vicky Streater, lives in Wimbledon with her husband, three children and gorgeous greyhound. She is passionate about colour and the environment, and obsessed by colour gradients and the mechanics of how colours change from one to the other. She loves natural dyes for their serendipity and refusal to be predictable. She loves the quietness of the process of knitting, how it's so creative, meditative and useful.
Her cashmere is certified organic, traceable and sustainable with an average fibre length of 34 - 38mm at less than 16 microns. The sustainable commercial dyes she uses are very "wash and light fast", and are founders of the global Responsible Care® initiative and a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. The organic botanical dyes she works with have been chosen for their light and wash fast qualities.
All of her packaging is from recycled paper and are recyclable. The electricity used to dye her yarn is from renewable sources. She has experimented with reducing the amount of water in her dyeing, and now only uses a third of what she used to. She doesn't use toxic auxiliaries or mordants and takes care to ensure her dye baths are fully exhausted.
