Swans Island Dip Dyed uses the same base as their Ecowash DK. It is a certified organic Merino yarn that is machine washable and so soft – making it ideal for children’s wear or garments and accessories that will be worn against the skin. This squishy hand-dyed yarn is treated with Ecowash®, an organic enzyme that prevents felting.
Each skein is 270 yards/100 gram and has a suggested gauge of 5.5 sts. to the inch on a US 5 or 6 needle.
Little Dipper colors have a "dip" of color on a natural base. Big Dipper colors have been dipped almost all the way, leaving a small amount of natural base undyed. This yarn is hand-dyed at their Northport, Maine studio.
We used one skein of this yarn to knit the Rikke Hat, a free pattern on Ravelry that looks good on everyone!
We have include the semi-solid hand dyed skeins of Ecowash dk that we have left in stock, because they are the same yarns, just dyed differently. We used this yarn to knit the Edgecomb Owl Hat. One skein will make two baby or toddler hats.
Machine wash, lay flat to dry.
