Why Natural Dyes?

As someone who cares deeply about our environment, as well as living a clean lifestyle, I find myself wanting to use plants and bark from the outdoors to create beautiful colored yarns. As an avid knitter, I was always overwhelmed by the neon speckled yarn and longed for more muted, earth tones to create with. Thus, natural dyes.


If you have stumbled across this page, welcome!  This blog is going to be used as a space for me to share my inspirations, my designs, my current WIPS, as well as behind the scenes of Wool & Warp.  This is a journey of sorts into the realm of a Slow Living Lifestyle and all that it is encompasses.

If you are not already familiar with Slow Living, it is a way of living with intention that includes a “Slow Living” wardrobe {one that is typically all of hand-made pieces}, a “Slow Living” household {minimalistic and chemical-free}, “Slow Living” food {more traditional and organic approaches}.  A Slow Living Lifestyle is one that is Sustainable, Local, Organic, and Whole.  I hope you enjoy the journey!
