Rose fibre is very similar to bamboo in appearance and feel. It is a new cellulose fibre made from rose bushes, it is environmentally friendly, green eco fibre. It is also bio-degradable.
Since there are no known sheep diseases in the Falkland Islands, the sheep are never dipped and never go through mulesing.

How soft is it? Next to skin soft for some
**This is a repeatable colorway, please head here for a custom dye if you need a larger quantity or would prefer it on a different fiber**
Dyed with Jacquard, Dharma and/or ProChem acid dyes.
I dye all my fiber using professional acid dyes in my smoke free and pet friendly home- our puppy 'Brutus' the Yorkshire Terrier is of course, not allowed to play with wool.
Care instructions: Because it is superwash treated, you can machine wash & dry the finished product on gentle cycle, however I recommend hand washing to lengthen the life of your item.
Please be aware. While I do strive to accurately represent the colors in all my products, all monitors vary and what I see on my screen, may not be what you see on yours.
I dye my fibers in small batches and no two 4 oz braids will be 100% the same- that's what makes working with hand dyed wool so fun!
Because of the nature of hand dyed fibers, each batch of 'Paintbrush' is unique & variations may occur.
