Alte Künste - Ancient Arts
Naturally Dyed Yarn
Margit Hofmann is the botanical dyer of Alte Künste. In 2011 she created the label to re-introduce high quality & lightfast botanical dyed yarn to modern textile crafts. For that reason Margit dyes solely with lightfast plant-material. She also does custom dyes for museums. Alte Künste yarn tends to be more on the bright side and the yarn bases range from DK to laceweight and merino & BFL to pure silk.
Margit & her husband live in a 300 years old farmhouse in the Palatinate Forest, Germany. Besides living & dyeing there, they share the place with cats, chickens, bees and other non-human persons. Free organic cotton project bag with all orders via the Botanica 2020
