One of our most popular and innovative colours is our signature flouro pink which we have specially dyed in the Scottish Borders. It’s a difficult hue to achieve and when Rosie launched the brand in 2011 she saw a gap in the market for bright fluoro cashmere colours. She pioneered the use of fluorescent hues by hank dyeing the colours in a double dye bath system to achieve a bright fluoro look normally only associated with bright synthetic yarns. It was a difficult technical path to go down but by persevering with this and combining it with unique designs she has differentiated her collection at a stroke from other suppliers.
Here is a glimpse at the process:
Raw material arriving at our dye-house:
The material is then spun into 2/28s white cashmere yarn which is then hank dyed using our own recipe:
The yarn is then dried and re-spun onto cones :
Then the yarn is ready to be knitted!
