Tinctoria

Hello and Welcome to Tinctoria.

At Tinctoria we hand dye Wool and other Yarns using a range of natural dyes. This results in one of a kind, beautiful hanks of wool that can be used in a variety of projects.

Natural dyes have been used for thousands of years to colour fabric a wide range of bright colourful shades. Each dye will gradually fade over time, so any garment that is made with this wool will change and develop.

We use a wide range of dyes from plants, roots, fruits and nuts. Metals, mushrooms and lichens can also be used to great effect. Colours achieved using natural dyes can change depending on the time of year harvested and the materials being dyed.

If you have a particular project in mind and require a set weight/length of wool in a particular shade, please let us know and we will be glad to dye a batch just for you.
