In commercial wool production only white fleece are selected to maintain consistency in colour / dying
It can’t be helped that each year coloured lambs are born
These coloured fleece will contaminate the yarn production process
These fleece are discarded and effectively binned by the farmers
Janet is in the process of getting these beautifully coloured yet waste fleece spun into yarn that she can use in her weaving
Not only have these Black fleece a beautiful colouration ranging from black through greys to browns all in the one fleece which give subtitle variations within the yarn
They are not bleached and synthetically dyed therefore more natural to be worn next to your biggest organ (the skin)
Janet feels strongly that the cloth she puts out into the world is not only sustainable but kind to the user as well as traceable from soil to skin.
