Natural Dyes

Natural dyes are colorants derived from plants, insects, minerals, or fungi.  Natural dyes have a beauty and depth of color that cannot quite be obtained with synthetic dyes. Chemical colors tend to be harder and sharper and so need to be carefully color matched while it is often said that the warm, soothing naturally dyed colors display harmony in any combination and become even more beautiful with age.

Discover our impressive selection of natural dyes for sale! We offer high-quality fiber and yarn dyes in a variety of colors.
