These Onesies are first quality yarn but contain small inconsistencies that distinguish them from the rest. Many of the skeins came out too light or too dark in the dyeing process, so color variation in general is a factor. There are also skeins with dots where drops of another color got on them, or white patches where the dye couldn't get to the yarn due to the string being tied too tight.
Swans Island Natural Colors Lace yarn is spun at a historic Maine mill, then hand-dyed with all natural dyes. Minimal processing makes this rich yarn incredibly soft. Each hand-crafted batch of yarn has unique variegated tonalities. Made of 50% merino wool and 50% silk. The ample yardage and soft touchability makes this a great choice for light shawls.
