Natural plant dyeing for natural fabrics such as CircStretch, Organic Cotton, Organic Peace Silks, Lenzing™ Ecovero™ and Speciality blends including Banana/ Organic Cotton.


Lenzing wood pulp fibres Tencel™ Modal™ and EcoVero™ take natural plant dyes beautifully however Tencel™ LUXE fibres are not as successful.


See Pantones for your dip test suggestions.  Please note as the colours are derived from natural plants they will look slightly softer and lighter on fabrics. Naturally dyed silks will create a more vibrant colour. These swatch cards are dyed cotton.
