Description

Dyed Grad Midnite (Midnight)

Dyed Grad Midnite: “A wonderful deep, rich charcoal gradation on fine natural Irish linen. Stunning!”

When previewed on 16 november 2011: “This is a black to charcoal grad.” “We made this one as it was requested by a number of customers but we’ll list what we have left later this evening.”
When compared to Neptune: “They are similar but Midnight has a black edge fading to charcoal, Neptune is a deep steel blue grey fade.”

As far as I know this has not been made on English linen (hence no v2).

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.

Midnite

Midnight is the transition time period from one day to the next: the moment when the date changes. In ancient Roman timekeeping, midnight was halfway between sunset and sunrise, varying according to the seasons. Midnight marks the beginning and ending of each day in civil time throughout the world. Source: Wikipedia.
