Welcome to Alte Künste - Ancient Arts!

High quality yarn with a new twist: dyed with natural colours according to historic methods.

Colours from natural dyes - especially from plant dyes - are beautiful and subtle. Their liveliness and complexity mirrors the diversity of nature. The special charm of natural dyes is that even distinctly different bright colours still blend well with each other - a unique colour-experience that only nature provides us with.

Meet Alte Künste in person at these yarn-festivals.

New colours always premier at yarn-festivals. Afterwards they are available in the online-shop. And more is to come: behind the scenes we are busy working on a re-launch of our 6 year old webpage including the online-shop. At this point all available colours can be bought via my etsy-shop:

*** We are very excited that our English language site is now up an running - if you want to switch to German, choose "deutsch" in the top right corner. (or click here) **

Looking for a specific colour or combinations of colours?

I dye individual colours according to your preferences.

Or are you interested in demonstrations on spining or natural-dyes? Maybe at your own place or event? Please use the contact form to get in touch with me and we can discuss more details.
