Naturally Dyed Yarn
All of the yarn created by A Verb for Keeping Warm is naturally dyed in our Oakland studio. We utilize organic, sustainably-harvested, all-natural extracts. Furthermore, we have our very own dye garden. All of the dyes utilized have passed energetic light fastness examinations. We make use of non-toxic, food-grade, aluminum potassium sulfate as a mordant, widely used for pickling so when an astringent.
We use normal dyes because we fancy working with all-natural materials and plants. We adore the stunning, natural color palette. We want to find out about the methods flowers, therefore the colors they supply, change seasonally and annually - while the method in which the dyes utilized might map our trip of in which we have been or where we desire to get. By playing the art of normal dyeing, our company is carrying on a process that has been the first way people added color to cloth. Our hope would be to still discover raw materials and dyestuffs cultivated and prepared in america, so we might donate to the growing field of US sourced cloth and yarn.
