READY FOR YOU
Dathú Collection ~ Kids
LA + Talú Collaboration
Dip-Dyed with Weld & Madder
Our new collection Dathú is a collaboration between Liadain Aiken Knitwear & Malú Colorín of Talú. We knit hats in natural ecru, wash them and send them to Malú to be dyed with natural dyes. This Kids fold up hat has been dip-dyed with Weld and Madder in the Talú studio in West Wicklow. Using natural dyes is not only better for the environment but also makes knitwear compostable at the end of its life, returning to the earth with ease.
These hats are a part of our READY FOR YOU range. It’s in stock and will be posted to you within 3 working days from the date of ordering.
We will be offering these in limited run Made to Order batches. If you have a dye colour in mind, please send me an email.

Material – 100% Merino Lambswool
Each of our beautiful Dathú hats are knit on hand-driven knitting machines and hand-dyed with plants. The creation of each hat consists of nine stages. From knitting to linking, hand-sewing to natural dyeing, washing to ironing, machine sewing labels and pompom making, each stage performed with love from our hands to your head. Our high end lambswool is from a family run Scottish company who has been spinning and dying yarns for 200 years. The dyes we use come from plants grown and processed in Europe using organic or low-energy methods that don’t cause deforestation. These plants have tried and tested historical efficacy and colourfastness.
