Indigo & madder


Four shawl patterns designed by me in collaboration with Renaissance Dyeing, a small family business specializing in naturally dyed yarn based in the foothills of the Pyrénées.

The natural dyestuffs used include indigo, madder, cochineal, chestnut and woad.


Renaissance Dyeing kits are available for each pattern.
