Many of the colours in our 100% Pure Wool carpets are actually the colours straight off the sheep’s back! Other colours come from natural dyes, such as madder and turmeric – keep reading for more detail on this

Natural Fibres

Cotton: A shrub like plant/tree bearing bolls containing seeds with long fibres in white or lightly tinted colorations. The fibres are cellulosic and spun into yarns.

Silk: A small continuous protein fibre produced by silkworm larvae, producing a fine luxurious fibre for weaving.

Linen: A reed like plant (Flax) that contains a fibrous cellulose fibre used for spinning into yarn. Linen is one of the oldest cultivated plants for making textiles.

Jute: A long shiny vegetable fibre that can be spun into coarse yarns.

Wool: A fine curly hair forming the coat of sheep or goat. The fleece is shorn off of the animals in spring. The protein fibre is carded and spun into yarns for textile products.

Natural Dyes

Indian Madder: A flowering plant in the coffee family cultivated for a red pigment derived from its roots.

Alkanet: A plant belonging to the borage family, its roots yield a purple/red pigment for dyeing.

Soap Nuts: A berry which is produced from the Soap Nut Tree. The berry produces a natural softener and surfactant used in fabric finishing.

Indigo: A subshrub plant with pinnate leaves and flowers which are used to make a rich purple blue dye. Archaeologists recently in 2016 uncovered the oldest scraps of Indigo dyed fabrics believed to be 6,200 years old in Peru.

Turmeric: A tropical plant from which spices and dyes are produced from the ground roots. A vibrant yellow colour is produced.

Pomegranate: A fruit that is rich in tannins and can be used for dyeing natural fibres. The rind and flowers are used to produce a lovely deep pink and red hue.
