We’ve been enamored of Swan’s Island for quite some time now. We visit them each year on our (currently running) FiberME tour, and appreciate the care they put into everything they do. Their fibers and colors are so enticingly rich. So it was nice to see a write-up of Swan’s Island in the New York Times Style Magazine blog. Did you know that they are one of only four fully certified organic yarn producers in the US? And that they use all natural dyes? Wonderful stuff! If you’re feeling so inspired, take a gander at our current Swan’s Island delgihts: Swans Island Organic Merino Ecowash Sport YarnSwans Island Fingering Organic Merino Wool YarnSwans Island Worsted Organic Merino Wool Yarn

We also love the classes taught by Jackie (aka Dyemama) here at Halcyon Yarn, who dyes for Swan’s Island…
