Dyed Grad Indigo Violet
Dyed Grad Indigo Violet: “Indigo moves through violet tones on white linen.”
This has been released before 2 August 2011 because then ‘some more were added’ to the site.
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’.
“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.
Indigo is a color that is traditionally regarded as a color on the visible spectrum, as well as one of the seven colors of the rainbow: the color between blue and violet. Although traditionally considered one of seven major spectral colors, sources differ as to its actual position in the electromagnetic spectrum. Indigo is a deep and bright color close to the color wheel blue (a primary color in the RGB color space), as well as to some variants of ultramarine. Source: Wikipedia.
Violet is the color of amethyst, lavender and beautyberries. It takes its name from the violet flower. Violet and purple look very similar; but violet is a true color, with its own wavelength on the spectrum of visible light, while purple is a composite color, made by combining blue and red.
