Swans Island's mill is one of only 4 in the United States that has a Global Organic Textile Standards certification. That means that the mill must be inspected and must conform to certain criteria to be considered organic. What this means in layman?s terms is that less harsh chemicals are used in processing, thus helping the yarn retain more natural lanolin than many other commercially produced yarns.
This Natural Colors Collection is a blend of 50% fine merino and 50% tussah silk ? a 2-ply lace-weight yarn that is exquisitely soft and lustrous. This yarn has subtle tonalities.
