Environmental Considerations

Wool is a sustainable, ethical, biodegradable wonder product! Here at Dye Happy, we only dye yarns grown and milled in Aotearoa. And are proud to support the NZ wool industry in doing so.

We dye our yarn in rainwater, collected from the roof and use professional acid dyes which, by adding citric acid to the dye bath, chemically bond to the fibres of the yarn. We ensure that dye is fully exhausted (so that there are no dye particles left in the water) before the water is returned to a neutral ph using baking soda and then used to water our flower garden.
