Product Description

Swans Island – Merino Worsted

We love the simple elegance of this lofty light worsted weight merino yarn by Swans Island which provides the knitter with such a sensual knitting experience. This is an ultra-soft wool, dyed exclusively with natural dyes in Northport, Maine and is part of the Swans Island organic Natural Colour Collection.

The saturation of the colours is intense and the minimal processing ensures amazingly tonal shades. Although the indigo does temporarily stain one’s fingers, it washes off easily enough. This is the prince amongst worsted weight yarns with a lovely twist and perfect stitch definition. Of unparalleled softness, the yarns is easy to knit with but sturdy enough to bear repeated wearing and washing.

We recommend 4.5 to 5.5 mm needles – but not wooden ones if your chosen colour contains indigo!
