A series of yarns that is the epitome of natural and sustainable production, made of organic wool and vegetably dyed. This series is entirely made with the yarn number Nm 28/2 and the yarns are GOTS-certified.
Vegetably dyed yarns from organic wool. We can't make it much more natural than that. GOTS-certified organic wool means, first of all, that the wool comes from organic sheep breeding. It also means that the wool, after shearing, has not been treated with substances that are bad for nature. The GOTS certification is also your guarantee that the highest social criteria have been applied during the entire wool production process.
Synthetic dyeing (provided it is done environmentally friendly) can have certain advantages: it is more efficient, cheaper, and does not take up any agricultural land.
However, when it comes to aesthetics, synthetic dyes are no match for vegetable ones. Vegetable-based colours are more sparkling, lively and richer. Don't think this is only a subjective observation, there is an explanation for this. In contrast to synthetic dyes, which always consist of only one colouring molecule, vegetable dyes are always the result of the synergy of several dyes present in the plant, sometimes even of different chemical groups and of (almost) colourless substances. In other words: synthetic dyes produce a flatter colour image, whereas the colour in vegetable dyes is made up of several components, which produces a richer colour image.
Dyes on wool generally give good results because dyes penetrate well into protein fibres.
