Lise dyes using professional washfast & lightfast dyes, food coloring and natural dyes, which have minimum impact on the environment as she exhausts each dyepot so atll the colour is absorbed onto the yarn and the water is clear and safe to use again for the next batch.
Tréliz is not just a yarn company, it‘s a philosophy. It is about making your heart sing, embracing color and meet amazing people. Let’s not forget Lise’s moto: "Color is Power, Fiber is Our Weapon".
