Product Description

Swans Island – Ikat

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 100% organic merino is hand-tied before saturating the skein in a rich dye-bath. Some are dyed twice to achieve a two-tone effect.  The unique colours and striking resist patterns create rich variations in even the simplest knit pieces.

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