Swans Island – Ikat Watercolors

The Swans Island Ikat Watercolors feature soft transitions between two distinct indigo-based hues, which make this hand-dyed Ikat yarn a joy to knit with.

The Ikat Collection from Swans Island is hand-crafted using one of the oldest methods of textile decoration. Ikat which means ‘to tie’ is an Indonesian resist-dye method that has been used for Centuries to achieve striking patterns.

Each skein of their 100% organic Merino yarn is first individually wrapped by hand, then carefully dipped by a master dyer into a vat of all natural dye. When the ties are removed, a striking pattern of resist marks are left behind, creating painterly transitions between rich indigo-based colorways.

We carry Ikat in both the ‘Watercolor’ and ‘Firefly‘ variations.
