This special and unique fibre pack features a trio of silks, both eco-printed and naturally dyed. All in a range of earth tones.

Paj silk is one of the lighter silks, machine sewing this fabric can be tricky, but is possible. I recommend using a sheet of tissue paper under your silk, and tearing it away after. Or alternatively, pairing with another fabric (e.g. a lining fabric) for ease of sewing. Or, of course, you can hand stitch.

This fibre pack includes:
- Paj silk (approx 140 x 27cm) dyed naturally using madder root and iron, then eco printed with a variety of locally foraged eucalyptus leaves. Colours range from coppery browns to deep silver/ purples.
- Paj silk (approx 90 x 10cm) eco-printed using locally foraged (from the ground) eucalyptus bark. A beautiful palette of white, mid and dark browns.
- Paj silk (approx 40 x 22cm) dyed using organic homegrown marigold petals and iron. A light mossy green with darker green speckles.
- Printed care instructions and each piece of fabric includes a label with the details.

These textiles are for personal use only.

Caring for your naturally dyed textiles:

Gently hand wash in lukewarm water using a mild detergent and cool iron. Please do not dry clean as the chemicals used will destroy the dyes. Botanically dyed textiles, like all fabrics, will fade over time if left in direct sunlight. Natural dyes are sensitive to citric acids (found in lemons, grapefruit, oranges, tomatoes etc) which will ‘bleach’ the fibres.

Please note actual colours may vary. It’s important to note that they may look different on a real product than what you see on your computer monitor. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours and that everyone sees these colours differently. We try to edit our photos to show the products as life-like as possible, but please understand the actual colour may vary slightly from your monitor.
