Swans Island Organic Washable (dk)


$ 14.50

Swans Island Yarn is from Northport, Maine. We begin offering their yarns with their organic dk washable wool because we realize that sometimes you need to use a machine-washable yarn. The 100% organic merino wool fiber used to make this yarn is gently treated with certified organic EcoWash® to enhance the fibers and prevent felting.

These skein-dyed, 50 gram hanks, have 140 yards of richly saturated color. The recommended needle size is a US 6 (4 mm) and knits up at 5 1/4 - 5 1/2 sts per inch. Although machine washable, it recommends to dry flat - as we like to do with all knits.

We loved using this yarn to knit Maine designer Mary Jane Mucklestone's Camden Cowl, a simple colorwork pattern that shows off the subtle tonal variations of this pretty yarn.
