Shilasdair uses as much local, natural dye sourcing as possible, but the inspiration for the colour range comes from the intense palette provided by the colours of wild Scotland and the Scottish Highlands.
Besides what they glean locally, the palette is extended with the tried and tested natural dye sources including indigo, madder, logwood, lac and cochineal.
