And this high quality, soft squishy yarn is GOTS-certified Organic and machine washable!
We carry both the Big Dippers (BD) and Little Dippers (LD) which naturally coordinate with each other too. Perfectly wearable in elegant, living colour and easy to care for.

Swans Island Company goods begin with natural fibers, sourced to the highest possible standard.
Based on the stunning Maine Coast, Swans Island source much of their fibre from local New England, domestic, family-run farms. Their organic merino from South America has been certified organic by theGlobal Organic Textile Standard, the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers.
Since each skein is spun and dyed in-house using time-honoured techniques, they are able to create uniquely saturated colorways that can’t be achieved in large-scale dye lots. Many of their yarns are dyed using naturally derived pigments like cochineal, indigo, and madder root.
You'll see that their home in Maine is their biggest design inspiration. Classical, clean, vibrant and natural. Eternally flattering!
