Customer comments
“'I have been experimenting with spinning my own needlepoint wool and dyeing it with natural dyes.  So far, I am having the time of my life and the wool is actually turning out well.  The dyed wool is fun to use in my needlepoint projects.” Nancy from the United States.

“Just to let you know that the woad has arrived – many thanks for such a super service!” Nicole from  www.madamelestrange.com

“I received woad today. Thank you!” Lyubov from Kazakhstan.

“Delighted with the woad! Just dyed a huge sheet of linen and it looks amazing, thank you.” Angie Stevens, Swansea

'I just wanted to thank you for this wonderful website. I’ve already harvested the leaves twice and am just filtering the second charge. So far, the yield is about 12-14g per two square meters.'  Alex Wuerkner from Germany
