Bulky - Indigo Dyed
A perfect fall yarn, each 100-gram skein of Swans Island’s Bulky is naturally dyed. Dyeing with natural dyes is a labor intensive process that brings much joy to the dyer, the knitter, and the environment, which results in beautiful yarns with lots of variegation and yarns that vary from lot to lot. Each skein is 130-yards, which is plenty for a ribbed hat or even a short scarf! 100% wool except for the Seasmoke and Oatmeal - these contain 15% Alpaca. NOTE: All of these colors of Swans Island 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.
