Knit with attitude is so excited to be introducing the wonderful hand dyed, eco-friendly yarns of Nurturing Fibres. Nurturing Fibres is an Eco-friendly yarn range, hand dyed near Cape Town by Carle Dehning and her team. Nurturing fibres strive to conserve as much energy and waste during their production process. They make use of borehole water that is heated by solar power for their dye baths. After dyeing, the PH levels in the dyebaths are neutralized and the water is used to irrigate an olive grove near the dye studio. Their whole production process, from receiving the spun yarn, is done by hand.

Eco-Lush very exciting to work with, giving a stunning result, this 4Ply plant fiber yarn is popular with knitters and crocheters alike. It is very versatile, and can be used for everything from cardigans to blankets. Eco-Lush is a 60% cotton and 40% bamboo blend, spun using 2 plies where the cotton is thicker and fluffier than the silky bamboo thread, resulting in the most beautiful play between the two fibres. As both fibres also takes dye differently, this combination offers a subtle duo-tone look. The cotton and bamboo are locally grown and while not certified organic, they have been farmed within these principles.
