DHG – Dyeing House Gallery of Prato Italy, supply all our felting supplies of merino wool roving and viscose fibre. As an official reseller, we import their premium quality Australian wool and viscose fibre. Dyeing in-house to Oeko-tex safety standards, they comply with GOTS – the Global Organic Textile Standard. After ethically and eco sustainably sourcing fibre, Colle, the DHG parent company, dyes the fibre. As we saw on a factory visit in 2017, the production process is fascinating, with rigorous testing and attention to quality. See video for a glimpse of the process.
Their location is Prato, Tuscany, a town with significant textile production going back hundreds of years. The DHG retail outlet is the ultimate lolly shop for serious felt makers!
