Hand dyeing fabric is at the core of what we do at Stuart Moores Textiles. We hand dye our fabric with unique blends of vibrant colors mixed up in our dye studios. We also offer naturally dyed fabric using organic materials such as avocado, indigo, lac, and many more. Our fabric is made from the highest quality cotton, linen, silk, and wool. Due to it’s high demand, we sell out of hand dyed fabric almost as quickly as we can make it. Check out the Fabric Shop to see what’s available now and sign up for our newsletter to find out when we release our next round of colors.
For those interested in learning about the art of hand dyeing fabric and yarn, we offer classes and hope to have an ebook published later this year. Sign up for our newsletter to find out when that happens.
