- The yellow felt babyslippers are dyed with the flowers of the Sophora japonica tree.
- Blue slippers are dyed with Japanese indigo, which is a plant that gives blue paint, mixed with the red of a natural resin.
- The pink slippers are dyed with Cochinilla, a louse that grows on cacti, in this case from the Canary Islands.
- Japanese indigo and the yellow flowers of the sophora japonica tree are used to dye the green slippers.
For the felt babyslippers I deliberately don’t use sheep’s wool from the other side of the world. There is so much sheep’s wool around the corner, which is just as good, but often discarded. Read my blog about my effords to put local sheep wool back into use .
The slippers are sent in gift packaging made of Kraft cardboard and with a small bunch of lavandula angustifolia from our own harvest. This lavender is soothing.
