Welcome to the Rose Hip Island online shop. I dye my yarn in small batches in my studio in Northern Tasmania, Australia.
All yarn is dyed with professional grade acid dyes. I recommend that hand dyed yarns are hand washed in cold to luke warm water with an appropriate wool wash. In my years of dyeing yarn for myself I have not had any problems with dye run-off, but to be safe I recommend that you wash your item separately the first couple of times. Dry flat in shade.
I work in a smoke-free and pet free environment.
With a background in Environmental Science I am conscious about the resources/materials I use and the potential impacts on the environment. I aim to make my dyeing process as efficient as possible to reduce any waste. I also source my bases and materials as locally as possible.
Orders are sent in compostable satchels using Australia Post, with a domestic flat rate shipping of $10AUD.
