Eucalyptus and plant dyed Milky Merino Wool




I am completely smitten with this fibre, Merino wool is so incredible to work with from a natural dye point of view...

These pieces have been shibori prepared and dyed with leaves and water and nothing else...



The way it falls in garments and scarves and the thirsty quality is has for plant dyes makes Milky Merino wool a national treasure...

You should check out this link to see the beautiful way it is produced which makes it all the more scrumptious.
