Swans Island Yarn reflects the beauty found in nature’s palette. Their organic fiber is spun in a certified organic mill. The yarn is skein dyed with natural dyes produced from living things, with little or no processing. They produce a wide range within each dyed color, much like the harmonious colors in the natural world.Swans Island yarns are spun and hand-dyed here in Maine. Certified organic wool, all-natural dyes and traditional hand-dyeing techniques produce incredibly soft yarns with rich colors and uniquely beautiful variegation. The Yarn Cupboard is proud to be a distributor of Swans Island yarns. These beautiful yarns are wonderful to work with.

The Ecowash® process is new to the United States.  The Ecowash® process of leaving the scales on the fiber and gently coating the fiber with an organic compound leaves our yarn less "stripped" and gives it a softer hand than many Superwash products.  The GOTS certified organic wool is spun at a historic Maine mill, then skein dyed with low impact dyes at the Sacor River Dyehouse, maintaining our variegated tonalities.
