Horsetail dyed, all natural plant dye, on lovely fine Shetland tops, ready for you to spin. This is a lovely soft natural yellow. A great addition to your natural Shetland colour collection! Hugely challenging to photograph natural yellows and greens on dull days!! But I hope I've captured something of the colour.
I have naturally dyed Shetland tops with the idea that hand spinners can produce authentic yarns and garments with colours that would have been produced on the Islands years ago.
Price is for one 25g pack.
I have included a photo of 25grams of this same fibre (but dyed with madder root) spun up in double knitting weight, just to show what 25 grams will make. This skein is not included in the sale. It measures 54 yards, and if you want any of my fibre spun up as a custom order, please message me.
It can be hard to calculate postage sometimes but as usual, I do not aim to make money on post, and will refund all overpayments greater than £1, upon dispatch.
From my smoke free, pet free workshop.
Lovely subtle pale yellow which is so very gentle especially alongside the Coreopsis dye which leans toward a bolder egg-yolk yellow. Both equally lovely and so glad to have the variations within my stash. Wonderful products & service - very happy, thank you.

Just stunning! This is just one of the Shetland tops I bought, and they are all wonderful. Terrific customer service, too.
