All natural dyes used by Botanical Threads are extracted directly from plants and are colourfast, but as they are chemical free they need a little extra care. Wash your items at a low temperature using a natural laundry detergent. Dry and store out of direct sunlight.
Each item is unique and the beauty of natural dyes is that the colours may vary slightly from those shown on a screen. Each batch of colour will be slightly different and it is normal to see flecks/spots of different colours or tones in fabric that has been coloured with plant dyes. Natural dyes are prone to a small amount of fading through normal wear – just like chemically dyed fabrics are. The fabrics are often beautifully mottled, with many different shades within the fabric.
