Item details

10g packs of hand selected, beautiful Logwood and Sorghum naturally dyed softest Teeswater lamb-locks. Locks measure between 6"-8 max". So that's quite a 'short' lock as sometimes they come much longer, but this is an idea length for incorporating into a handspun yarn. Locks from younger sheep like this, tend to be shorter anyway.

These are really silky and fine. Trying to describe the colour, a soft lavendar grey, over dipped with Sorghum to give a warm reddish bronze.

I try to include in each 10g pack locks of varying length. It's very suitable for hand-spinning into art yarns, or incorporating into weaving projects, wall hangings or as trim around garments.

This is the all natural dye of Logwood and Sorghum, so these locks had to first go through a mordant process and then the dye had to be extracted and a third process to dye the locks and a forth process to dip dye the tips, before drying and sorting, so a lot of fiddly work here, but very satisfying.


Anyone interested in a bulk buy, message me for postage price. Usually it's a lot cheaper than Etsy says, but it's difficult to be specific about postage as there are many variables.

Each 10g bundle is individually packaged in a nice clear cellophane envelope with a label.

    A lot lot darker than picture but good quality Review has now been changed to 1 star (was 4 star originally) due to the seller trying to bribe me to change it to 5 stars I give honest reviews and do not give in to unprofessional bribes. I am now questioning the other good reviews and wondering if they have been bribed as well....

    Absolutely delightful. I love the earthy tones and colour gradient. So much time and love has been invested into each bundle of loveliness. These fibers are high quality, and feel so soft and clean. Perfect for my boho cloth doll hair. Arrived quickly and well packaged, lovely seller. Will be back! Thankyou.

    Wonderful, wonderful locks. You can tell all the time, love & care taken in them. Extremely lovely colour graduation ranging from subtle pink / beige through to blush & then onto rich, darkening tones of dusty pinks - exquisitely beautiful plant magic! Love this colourway so much! Extremely happy & arrived safe & sound to Australia.

    i searched everywhere, it felt like, for wool that was naturally dyed and in a more subtle and neutral color palette. Every color i bought from you was just lovely and i think will work very well with my dolls. Thank you so much!! everything is just beautiful!
