              The natural undyed colors are beautiful.
              I'm using it double stranded to knit a blanket that will be similar to the woven blankets from Swans Island.

                  The textured crochet sweater I am working on is beautiful. The subtle shading is lovely and adds richness.

                      • Very Fine Sock Knitting

                      Comments about Swans Island Fingering:

                      The colour, while beautiful, lacked flicker, or rather was consistent throughout the skein. I guess I was hoping for a bit more variation, although I am delighted with the yarn, if a bit terrified to be working this fine! Didn't someone say no project is too daunting if you want the end product enough? My New Years Resolution of knitting a pair of fine socks for myself (after 60 plus pairs of plain durables for husband and family) is coming home to roost.

                      I have used this product to knit two lace shawls. The yarn is soft to the touch and a dream to knit with.I highly recommend this yarn.

                      Comments about Swans Island Fingering:

                      The Beetroot color does bleed on the hands as you works with it. I have to wash the blue off my fingers everytime I put the work down. It's a little annoying but I am sure once I wash it it should be fine. The color is so lovely I am willing to ignore the color bleeding.

                      It's springy and stretchy with great stitch definition. The colors are gorgeous, and I suspect my project will last for many years. Great quality!

                      Love the yarn but not the excess dye. Perhaps another color other than indigo would be better.

                      Swan's Island makes top quality yarns. I make fair isle caps for friends and family every winter and prefer a fingering weight yarn so that I can use intricate patterns. These caps look and feel wonderful. Looking forward to doing a three color short-row shawl. The colors are so beautiful together.

                      Wanted to make a cowl with beads and this yarn was a wonderful yarn for the project. It will be nice and soft against my neck. Knits up like a dream!
