Swans Island Natural Colors Worsted Yarn



Swans Island Natural Colors Worsted Yarn
Regularly $32.00Sale from $24.00
5-6 skeins of this incredible hand dyed, worsted weight yarn is perfect for a pullover or cardigan. It is dyed with natural dyes in a labor intensive process that brings much joy to the dyer, the knitter and the environment. It results in beautiful yarns with lots of variegation that vary from lot to lot.

**PLEASE NOTE** Some of the colors are dyed with all natural Indigo. The dyeing process for indigo is quite different from other plant based dyes as the Indigo molecues sit on top of the fiber rather than penetrating into it. Because of this, it is the inherent nature of natural indigo dyed yarns to have some rub off. Everything has been done to minimize this, but you may experience some color rubbing onto your hands or needles. All colors that are created using Indigo are identified with a special tag.

Swans Island Natural Colors Worsted Onesies Yarn



Swans Island Natural Colors Worsted Onesies Yarn
Regularly $32.00Sale from $19.20
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.

Five to six skeins of this incredible hand-dyed, worsted weight yarn is perfect for a pullover or cardigan. It is dyed with natural dyes in a labor intensive process that brings much joy to the dyer, the knitter and the environment. It results in beautiful yarns with lots of variegation that vary from lot to lot.

Each grab bag contains 2 different-colored hanks of Natural Colors Lace. The hanks come largely unlabeled and contain small inconsistencies in quality and color that distinguish them from the rest.
