A novel new way to bring limited availability fibers to you. Swans Ialand Small Batch yarns are crafted with the best that nature has to offer: a custom blend of pure domestic fibers, dyed by hand with all natural dyes at their historic Northport, Maine dye house. Just like your farmer's market favorites, these special yarns are designed to bring a burst of color and light to your winter season.
The first of these new seasonal yarns, Swans Islands Small Batch No. 1, is a snug, luscious bulky weight yarn - a custom blend of domestic Merino and Alpaca fibers, wrapped with a ply of domestic cotton. The soft domestic fibers soak up the natural dyes differently, resulting in a two-toned wrap with a rustic, sophisticated texture - sometimes subtle, sometimes striking, always unique.
