Jake’s Sunday post: Natural Resources

A difficult one Jake but I hope this works! 

Just as it says, this is 100% wool felted into Dori cord. The wool comes from New Zealand and it is felted in Nepal and dyed using plants like senna, madder and indigo.

Nepali wild Hemp, linen from India and Giant Himalayan nettle cord and thread. All in its natural colour and hand spun in Nepal.

New Zealand wool again, dyed in Nepal with Rhubarb, Pomegranate, Madder, Myrobalan and Indigo.

  1. Those are beautfiul yarns. I must say, I wouldn’t fancy hand spinning nettles, but maybe they have lost their nettli-ness by the time they get to be spun! Gorgeous soft colours too. Do you live in Devon? My son is in Plymouth. It’s a beautiful county. Sadly don’t get to visit it often enough!

    I’ve missed the 100WC most of this year, which is a shame. Wish there were more hours in the day!

  2. Beautiful array of textures and colours, Gilly. I have always preferred natural fibres and dyes. I’m with nuvofelt … what are you selling at the craft fair? AND, pics please!

  3. I love your take. I saw this topic and instantly thought, “What in the heck should I post.” You didn’t have any issues coming up with something clever.

  4. I’m itching to learn this stuff but I end-up of keeping them hiding in the box! I was envy to my Sister-Inlaw who keep sending me her artwork using this stuffs, she’s very good at it.:)

    Great one Gilly,

    1. I used to knit years ago, I could do fair isle and aran but don’t have time now. I talked to the lovely young couple selling this yarn and thread and it really made me want to knit again 🙂

I would love to hear from you . . .
