Our Collection

Our curated selection of exquisite textiles will complement a variety of styles from modern to Mediterranean to cottage.

Green

Ch'illca produces a very dark green.  It can also be combined other plants such as Ñuñunqa, to produce lighter, brighter green hues.


Blue

Tara, combined with blue collpa, produces blue.


White/Grey/Black/Brown

Usually there is no need to dye the yarn at all to achieve this as the alpaca and llamas are these colors.

Red/Pink/Purple 

Cochineal is used to dye a wide range of shades in varying intensities, from bright red to shades of pink, purple, and orange.  It is a scale insect that lives on the prickly pear cactus.


Orange/Coral

The inner bark of the Chapi plant, which grows in August and September, is used to create shades of orange and coral. 


Yellow/Orange

Q’olle flowers are often used to make yellow, as well as some shades of orange.

The Colors:
The Andean people use a variety of plants, insects and minerals to naturally create dyes for their textiles.  The selection depends on what is native to the region.
