What makes top dye cloth so special when compared to regular piece dye or yarn dye cloth?
There are three types of dying processes:
1. Piece dye - where pre-woven fabric is dyed
2. Yarn dye - where spun yarn is dyed a single color
3. Top dye - where the worsted wool fiber is dyed and then color blended into top dye yarn
Top dye yarn creates complex color that reads like an oil painting. Many colors are working together to create a hue with depth and character. Top dye yarn is dyed to the very core of the fiber, so that the color will last (and stay vivid) for the life of the garment. This color does not fade with time.
