Dyeing House Gallery (DHG) of Italy, are our primary supplier of merino wool roving and viscose fibre. We import their premium quality Australian wool and viscose fibre. Dyeing in-house to Oeko-tex safety standards, these fibres are also organic. They comply with GOTS – the Global Organic Textile Standard and the wool comes from flocks where there is no mulesing. Their location is Prato, Tuscany, a town with significant textile production going back hundreds of years. As we saw on a factory visit in 2017, the production process is fascinating, with rigorous testing and attention to quality. The retail outlet is the ultimate lolly shop for serious felt makers!
