Oatlands Handmade is now a proud stockist of Australian-made LANDSCAPE DYES for wool, silk & nylon. I have also had excellent results with bamboo yarn and wool blends.  Don't forget overdyeing as well - we often forget that by applying another colour, the original can be enhanced and made unique. 100gms will dye 1 kilo of fibre. 

I have 100g pots of all of the ORIGINALS RANGE : 32 bright strong colours which have been developed to give a professional colourfast results with a simple dyeing method.  The primaries - Wattle, Desert Pea, Grevillea, Marine & Opal - provide a good extended palette.  Also stocking the SAMPLER PACKS, several of which feature the ELEMENTS RANGE of beautiful colours inspired by elements of the Australian environment. These packs are great if you would like to "have a go" with a palette of colours in a smaller quantity with a variety of colour results achieveable. 

Colour charts and instruction leaflets available. 

DON'T FORGET Oatlands Handmade's Tasmanian 18.5 micron superfine merino tops for your hand dyeing needs - packs of 20g, 50g, 100g available and larger quantities by request.

Fresh English Leicester and Border Leicester fleeces from this year's shearing also in stock.
