Swans Island Mittens

swans island mittens

Sarah made THE most adorable mittens for my little man! Using the Swans Island worsted weight in Teal & Spring Green & her own pattern, (yeah–she’s good like that!) Sarah whipped up the perfect winter mittens. If you have never used Swans Island yarn before it is a real treat. The yarns is certified organic merino yarn that is naturally dyed & spun in Maine. They are mordented with non-metallic mordents, and then skein dyed with natural substances such as Indigo, cochineal, madder, weld, and other plant dyes. All of the coloring is done in small batches on the coast of Maine. Truly amazing & absolutely beautiful!

Thanks for the mittens Sarah–Franco LOVES them!
