Studio Solas is a creative space based in the northern part of the Netherlands.

At our studio Vera uses natural dyes to create soft shades of color on yarns and textiles. Locally foraged plants or kitchen scraps are gently processed to create a beautiful palette, all matching or complementing each other.

We like to work with nature and think carefully about our footprint. We reuse our water from the dyeing process and compost our used plant material, so nothing goes to waste.

The materials we use are all natural and/or sustainable as well. Our yarns are all plastic free 100% wool, for our bags we use organic linen, cotton and wool as the main base. All packaging is degradable and/or made from recycled materials.

Our home is pet and smoke free.

Our yarn bases

We are continuously looking for suitable yarns and fibers that meet our high standard. All our yarns are plastic and mulesing free!

At the moment we offer you a soft merino and a blf/masham blend from the UK. These yarns are perfect for shawls and sweaters

We also have a rustic wool from Lithuania. This yarn is a little coarse but I can wear it next to my skin. It would be perfect for outdoor sweaters/cardigans or warm indoor socks!

In the future we plan to host a local wool!!
