OUR COLORS | NATURAL WOOL DYES

 

It is really exciting to try a new dye with a bark, berry, flower or vegetables we just found! We use for our selected range of colors: red onion peels, white onion peels, aronia berries and dry pomegranates, all of them can be found as discarded material in Montenegro. We ‘cook’ the elements we collected for an hour, filter them and let cool down. Then we put the wool in small loose bundles in and slowly bring the temperature up until the color soaked in the wool. Did you know that it is a tradition for centuries in Montenegro to dye Easter eggs with onion peels? We use traditional dyeing techniques that are getting slowly getting forgotten in Montenegro. Discover below how we create our yarns, some keep their natural colors and others get dyed naturally:
