Swans Island Ikat Collection - Firefly Yarn

Firefly - the newest Ikat Collection yarn - features nine hand-dyed colorways that incorporate striking white resist patterns against a single deep tone. Dyed using the same ancient Ikat technique, this fresh new addition to the Ikat Collection sports an entirely different look with striking results. The delicate accents of white resist marks are achieved by hand-tying each skein in a distinct pattern before saturating it in a rich bath of low-impact dye. When knit up, these bold resist marks reveal intriguing patterns of white stitches against their rich, dark grounds. The effect reminded us of fireflies sparkling against a night sky!
