Uranium- Pigments- Merino, Sari Silk, Mulberry Silk & Llama. 100g


Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk. 

Very much not radioactive. This fibre is dyed using the exact same Okeo-Tex 100 certified dyes as all the other fibre stocked in the shop. The colour is simply inspired by this historic pigment. Uranium was used to create vibrantly coloured glass and ceramics in the first half of the 20th century. The vibrant green colour was commercially popular, and you can still find this glassware in second hand shops, the big giveaway is that the colour fluoresces under UV light. It was also used as glazes for Fiestaware ceramics, giving them a vibrant red and orange shade. 

 

Colour Description- Lime Green with red streaks

This range of fibres will use the same fibre composition, and the collection will rotate through different colours and collections over time. Some colours will be restocked, and others may be temporary to allow space for other colours. Even if a colour is restocked the nature of the sari silk means it's unlikely that the next batch will be the same "dye lot". If consistency is going to be vital for your project please bear this in mind.
