Ramie comes from a plant of the nettle family. Ramie is one of the bast fibre crops and is one of the oldest known fibers. Ramie was used in mummy cloths in Egypt and has been grown in China for many centuries. Ramie has a silky luster and is pure white in colour. Ramie, also known as China Grass is resistant to bacteria and mildew, is absorbent and cool and comfortable to wear during hot summer months. Ramie is produced from the bark of the vegetative stalks. The Ramie bark goes through a retting and degumming process to soften them into a silky and lustrous fibre.

This handspun yarn has been dyed in a natural Indigo Vat. The process of dyeing yarn with Indigo is a slow method. The Indigo vat must be nurtured and fed on a daily basis. The yarn is dipped into the vat several times and allowed to dry to produce deepness of colour. Natural Indigo colour does not fully penetrate the fibre, but is applied in layers onto the top surface. Due to the nature of true Indigo dye, the colour flakes off and will gently fade over time, just like your blue jeans.

This ramie yarn is hand spun at the time of your order. Please allow 1-2 weeks for completion of your handspun yarn. If you would like to order a larger quantity, please contact me.
