    plant dyed organic kids shirt
    5-7 years

     

    organic merino wool dyed by hand with locally sourced sustainably grown plants. 

    this top was dyed with eucalyptus, gathered with respect from the abundant trees of the east bay hills.


    our fiber products reflect the soil and living ecology of place - mostly the east bay area. 

    we never use commercial dyes, extracts, or powders. all the plants sourced for our plant dyed fibers are thoughtfully chosen with awareness of the land, seasons, ancestral practices, balanced ecology, and traditional foodways. we harvest wild plants ourselves with honor and care, or grow many of our own dyestuff on our sustainably managed land. a few dye products are grown with intention by local farmers. plant based dyes are safe and even nourishing for our environment, soil, and water systems. 


    wool is a naturally antibacterial, temperature regulating, sustainable fiber. these shirts are made with 100% merino wool and are incredibly stretchy and soft. they fit for a long time, and are perfect as underlayers, sleeping clothes, or everyday wear. 

     

    -our merino wool can be gently machine washed in cold water and line dried-

     

    •  this is a living item! plant dyes are by nature imperfect and reflective of the complexity of real living plants and soils and the chemistry of hand dyeing. while all of our fiber products are crafted to maximize light and wash fastness, plant based dyes by their nature are less even and permanent than conventional chemical coloring. some variation in color or depth across the item is normal and beautifully unique! some slight changes in color over time are expected with light exposure and washing. you can maximize the life of your fibers by washing in cold water with a gentle ph-neutral soap. please wash alone or with like colors for the first few washes. all wool and silk fibers should be line dried for best results. •
