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


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

Saffron is an aromatic spice that also stains a beautiful golden yellow. Harvested from the stamens of crocuses by hand, and then dried, this precious spice is more expensive per gram than gold. It's not very useful for dyeing fabric (Buddhist monks robes are described as saffron yellow, but saffron is not used to obtain the colour), the yellow fades quickly with light and washing... that's why this collection of colours uses modern synthetic dyes to simulate the shades!

Colour Description- Vibrant golden, sunshine yellow with orange 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.
