Dye Process

Our cotton yarn is hand painted at Three Pines Studio with our own specially formulated dyes. Colors are chosen and mixed to follow the latest fashion trends including Pantone’s Color of the Year. We‘re also happy to create custom colors for your every need!





The 2020 Pantone color of the year is Classic Blue!

The Pantone Color of the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s color experts at the Pantone Color Institute comb the world looking for new color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact color, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention. 


Indigo dyeing is captivating. The mysterious process of indigo begins with transforming a substance in a leaf of a plant from it’s primary source, indican, through fermentation in the water to it’s dried insoluble state of powder, crystals, or balls until it is activated again in a dye vat. The dyed goods come out of the bath green and turn blue upon oxidation. The longer the goods are in the bath, the deeper the blue.
