Dyed Grad Sunshine on Diamond with linen

Dyed Grad Sunshine on Diamond with linen: “Sunshine shimmering on a wrap! Hand dyed on our diamond pattern 50% super soft ecru cotton, 50% ecru linen fabric. 248gsm.”

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’.

This has been re-released over the course of the years. This is the info on the updated 2016 version.

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.

Sunshine

Sunlight is a portion of the electromagnetic radiation given off by the Sun, in particular infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light. On Earth, sunlight is filtered through Earth’s atmosphere, and is obvious as daylight when the Sun is above the horizon. When the direct solar radiation is not blocked by clouds, it is experienced as sunshine, a combination of bright light and radiant heat. Source: Wikipedia.
