BEETROOT - 10 ply / ARAN 100g

BEETROOT - 10 ply / ARAN 100g


Beetroot is known in the natural dye world as a fugitive dye, meaning that it doesn't last forever. It fades  in the sun, that is for sure, but so do most things even if commercially dyed. Our Aussie sun can be rather unforgiving that's for sure!  But unlike synthetic fibers and dyes, our botanical dyes age gracefully like the hair on your head. Bright and vibrant to start with and slowly fade to mellow yet full of character and story in mature years. Unlike us humans though you can always hook into the beetroot fountain of youth and re-dye your well loved yarn creation.

Nothing should last forever; love what you have while you're here and leave the earth clean for the future.
