Colour and Cotton hand dyed threads and fabrics are created in small batches, or dye lots, to ensure quality.
Environmentally-Friendly and Non-Toxic Dyes
Our dyes achieve colorfastness through chemical reaction, not toxic fixatives. The molecules of the dye adhere to the molecules of the fiber to create a lasting bond that will never wash out or fade.
We have a very personal commitment to making as little impact on the environment as possible through my business, and are happy to say that all of the products used in our dyeing process meet the following criteria:
Dye Lots: Because our fibers are dyed in small batches, there may be slight variations between dye lots. There are many factors that affect the finished dye product, including temperature, humidity, variations in mixed dye powder from the manufacturer, and water quality, among other things. It is recommended that you purchase enough fiber for your entire project at one time. When ordering multiple quantities of a particular colorway, you will always receive skeins from the same dye lot.
