Worsted - Indigo Dyed
Swans Island Yarns are a certified organic merino yarn that is naturally dyed. The yarns are spun in Maine. They are mordented with non-metallic mordents, and then skein dyed with natural substances such as Indigo, cochineal, madder, weld, and other plant dyes. 100% wool except for the Seasmoke and Oatmeal - these contain 15% Alpaca. NOTE: All of these colors of Swans Island, including Charcoal, are dyed with natural indigo. It is inherent to these dyes that they will rub off a bit onto your hands and maybe wooden needles. Although indigo dyes are perfectly safe and easily wash off your hands, you may want to soak your skein in a warm white vinegar bath before you wind it into a ball.
