  • Now Available in 50g Mini Skeins (while it lasts...)

    This amazingly soft, squishy and luxurious blend of Baby Alpaca, Silk and Cashmere has been beautifully dyed using only natural materials (plants, flowers and sometimes insects!).

    Zuzana at Trava & Wool is a wonderfully talented natural dyer and knitter.

    She dyes her yarn in small amounts from her tiny studio in South Devon using plants which are foraged locally, in woods, on the fields and by the roads and natural extracts (highly concentrated powder or liquids from whole dyestuff).   

    The resulting colours are always full of warmth and so flattering next to the skin.

    Washing and care

    Every skein is rinsed and wash carefully and individually to remove any excess dye.

    It is strongly recommended that these natural dyed yarns are washed in ph neutral solution - even ordinary dish-washing liquid (dish-washing detergent) will do the job. Water temperature shouldn't be more than 30 degrees C.

    We live in South Devon in tiny house and renting big allotment, full of flowers for my yarn.
