To quote Beth here at the shop, “It’s as smooth as a baby’s ….” well you know. Beautifully hand-dyed in collaboration with Maine’s own Saco River Dyehouse. You’ll love the subtle shading variations, just exquisite. The stitch definition is fantastic. So let’s see, organic, super soft, gorgeous colors, great stitch definition. Could there be more to love? Why yes!

Swans Island EcoWash treatment produces machine washable wool in a more gentle process than tradition Superwash treatments. Instead of using chlorine to strip the wool scales and prevent felting, organic EcoWash leaves the scales on the fiber and coats it with a mild compound which enhances the wool fibers and prevents the fibers from felting. Simply a better process for everyone and everything.

So when it comes to getting the very best for your baby, look no further than Swans Island Organic EcoWash Sport. But don’t just think babies for this lovely yarn. It’s ideal for any pattern calling for a sport weight wool. Each 50 gm skein has 175 yds with an average gauge of 6.75 sts/in on US size 3 needle. Currently available in soft palette of colors, with deeper, rich colors arriving later this year.
