Plant based natural colours for 2021
Naturally dyed wool will almost always have variations that are called abrash. The subtle changes in shade are the imperfections that give natural colors their own special unique charm. Mum's new collection is based on plant based colours. For Spring 2021 we made Pipana Natural's collection: beautiful cushions and rugs designed by Jenni Rope, in plant based colours. Kind of elegant look, don't you think?
Natural wool is the base. One may find some yellowish tones which come from weld and larkspur ( värireseda & ritarinkannukset in Finnish). Green dyes are produced by double dying the yarn first in larkspur, weld or saffron and then indigo. Orange dye colour is produced from henna leaves, brown from oak bark, nutshells and walnuts. For some browns a wool of brown sheep is used. The leaves of the indigo plant is the eldest, and most common source. The leaves must be fermented to produce blue colour.
