*The following colors of Swans Island yarns, INDIGO, TEAL, CHARCOAL, are dyed with all-natural indigo. It is the inherent nature of natural indigo-dyed yarns to have some "rub off". Swans Island has done everything possible to minimize this; however, you may experience some color rubbing off onto your hands or needles. It is not harmful and will wash off. It is recommended that you use metal needles, as indigo will stain wood or bamboo needles. You may want to soak your skein in a warm white vinegar bath before you wind it into a ball to help set the dye.
