Dyed Grad Blue Lagoon




Dyed Grad Blue Lagoon

Dyed Grad Blue Lagoon: “Colours evoking memories of the Blue Lagoon in Malta, where the sun hits the crystal clear waters over white sands creating this idyllic hue.  This has been dyed on high quality Irish linen which requires less breaking in and weighs 180gsm. Perfect for the summer.”

I think Dyed Grad Blue Lagoon was previewed on Facebook on 3 June 2011 – I’m not 100% sure though, it may have been Skylark. If it was, it went on sale when the website went live.

Another batch went live on 7 March 2012: “Just adding a few Irish linen wraps in Spice, Amelia and Blue Lagoon to the site. Please note that the turquoise in this batch of Blue Lagoon has moved slightly more to the green than the previous batch – still a gorgeous colour, just slightly different than before.

Oscha has hand dyed gradations on fine English and Irish linen, as well as on diamond weave cotton and linen/cotton blends. They are all lovingly hand dyed by Vicki Masters aka ‘Nana Oscha’.

Dyed Gradation

“The linen for our art and gradation dyed slings is sourced from a traditional manufacturer in Ireland, where it is woven on a famous old loom. Irish linen is amongst the finest in the world, with its finely spun yarn, its softness and strength. We then hand dye the linen using high-quality dyes to ensure long- lasting vibrant colour.

Our Irish linen is sourced from a traditional manufacturer, and woven to the highest standards. Irish linen is considered to be the best available. It is strong, durable and finely spun. The result is a wrap that supports wonderfully, wears remarkably well, and once broken in, feels silky soft. It also looks great when worn.

Of all textile fibres, linen is one of the most ecologically sound. It needs less fertilizers and pesticides than most other crops – it is low input and therefore more environmentally friendly. It is also renewable with a short growing cycle and every part of the plant is used. Flax fibre is stronger than cotton fibre and its properties were recognised as early as Phoenician times when it was used to make linen sails.

While Oscha may be most famous for its jacquard patterns, dyed gradations have always been a part of the in stock items on the website. They are very nice for warm (or even hot!) summers, keeping you cool like no other fabric will. Read more about the dye process on Oscha’s blog.
