The Linen Yarn shows the raw beauty of Belgian flax, spun in Bengal. It offers a wonderful buttery hand and the exceptional weight and presence that only linen can give.
Linen is one of the more challenging fibres to dye naturally, especially to dye well. So DAHAD has sourced a superior 100% naturally dyed thread
Beautiful rich jewel-like tones that are both deep and even. Lighter colours that are consistent, level, and delicate without being weak. Colours that are as satisfying to work with as the act of creating.
100% Natural Dyes
It is said by many natural dyers that all things dyed naturally go together. Nothing clashes and there are no richer colours than those those found on fibres coloured with natural dyes.
DAHAD has sourced 100% natural and historically accurate dyes from all over the world, they are packaged to remain potent and each has its own story.
