Item details

Fingering weight hand spun, natural Rose vegan fiber yarn dyed with natural Madder Root plant dye.
Rose fibre is another one of the ‘new’ vegan hand spinning fibres, made from roses. The rose fibre has been extracted from the natural waste of rose bushes and stems. The fibre has been stripped and processed to create a luxurious and soft handspinning spinning fibre, similar to silk.

Spin Flora handspun Rose yarns are very soft and silky and are wonderful for knitting, crochet or weaving.

Approx Skein weight: 50 grams
Approx length: 140-150 meters
Colour: Madder Root Pink

Yarns that are dyed with natural plants is a slow process and not to be hurried. First the dye plant needs to be soaked and softened to dissolve and release the dye pigments from the plant. Sometimes this is done by heating and soaking the leaves, stems or roots overnight, sometimes by adding alcohol to dissolve the dye pigment, and sometimes by natural fermentation. The yarn or fiber has to go through a process of mordanting in a solution such as alum, to prepare the yarn to be able to absorb the dye colour. After the mordanting process, then the yarn is simmered or soaked in the dye stock solution for several hours or overnight in the dye solution to absorb the colour. Once the desired colour has been achieved, the dyed yarn is then carefully rinsed and washed to remove any excess dye pigment and then left to dry.

If you would like to order Spin Flora hand spun vegan yarns dyed to a natural dye colour, such as Indigo blue, Weld yellow, Madder root pink or other natural plant shades, or quantity, please ask.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for completion of your custom order. I will keep you updated on the progress of the yarn.
