Swans Island Fingering is a 100% organic merino that is hand dyed with all natural dyes. The minimal processing and low micron count give this yarn an incredibly soft feel. With 525 yards per skein, you can easily complete a shawlette with just one. 

Note: Color Silver #212 is part of the Sterling Collection and is 85% Organic Merino Wool/15% Alpaca.

Hand-dyed yarns have subtle variations in colors that are natural and may vary from skein to skein. There may be differences between pictures shown and the yarn you receive. To ensure the best results for your project:

  • Buy enough yarn for your entire project at one time.
  • When using hand-dyed yarn in your project work two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect.

If you have any concerns about your hand-dyed yarn, please contact Customer Service for assistance in returning or exchanging your yarn.

Glad I could find some more of this color

Comments about SWANS ISLAND Fingering:

Actually I'd understood from your site that this yarn was suitable for #4 needles, which is what I wanted to finish a second glove, and of course it's much finer than that (fingering weight). But I rolled the skein into 2 balls, used it double, and it worked out fine even though obviously not the same dye lot. I'm sorry the color is discontinued because I like it! I'm using the rest of the skein (NOT doubled) for socks. (You wouldn't happen to have a card of reinforcing yarn for the socks, in a suitable color?)

Love this yarn

By

Comments about SWANS ISLAND Fingering:

I am making alight weight pull over sweater from the neck down. This wool is soft but holds it own. It's fingering weight and I'm using a #5 needle at 6 sts per inch. It is beautiful to work with and I think the sweater will be wearable almost all year long in Southern California.

Excellent Stitch Definition and Drape

By 

from Waukesha, WI

Verified Reviewer

Comments about SWANS ISLAND Fingering:

I have now used this yarn for three shawls, and I love it, to the extent that I will buy it again whenever I see it on sale. The only difficulty is in hand-winding this yarn, which tends to get very tangled towards the ends of the skeins, but I have never found a knot in the six skeins I have already wound. The colors are beautiful, with lovely variations in color intensity. The colors do rub off on the fingers while knitting, but they are easily washable, and the finished garments do not bleed onto clothing. Finished shawls are light and airy, warm in winter and comfortable in spring.

Lovely yarn

By 

from Plainsboro, NJ

Verified Buyer

Comments about SWANS ISLAND Fingering:

I am using this yarn to make a shawl. The yarn is beautiful and has a wonderful feel and drape. The color is perfect. I am using a number of skeins for this project and each one is extremely different in color. Alternating skeins is a must. Even at that, the project is taking on a bit of a stripy look, but I would still use it again.

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Shawls Scarves

    Comments about SWANS ISLAND Fingering:

    I will use this yarn for shawls and scarves. Though I haven't actually used it yet, I have wound the balls. All yarn is even in consistency, and smooth, without a knot, twist, tie or other imperfection in the entire 525 yds. This is a high-quality yarn, worth the price.

    Comments about SWANS ISLAND Fingering:

    I used the beetroot color which is really gorgeous - especially after washing. I really like the subtle changes of color - not stripey. The only downside is the yarn bleeding all over my hands the entire way through the shawl. (It did wash off without a problem.)

        Comments about SWANS ISLAND Fingering:

        I'm making the Litchfield shawl, a stockinet stitch on size 7 needles, with Oatmeal (one of the colors that has 15% alpaca). It is wonderfully soft, and is exactly what I hoped for in the shawl. Although the skein has 525 yards, when I wound the skein into a ball, there were no knots, the yarn doesn't split, and stitches look nice & even. The color is perfect, and matches the photo on the website well. I got what I expected and am very pleased with the yarn. I'm not sure how it would be for socks (no nylon for strength), but they would certainly be soft and warm.
