Swans Island Ikat Collection - Firefly Yarn Reviews

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!

Overall Ikat Collection - Firefly Rating: 5 out of 5 stars (5.0 based on 1 review)

Nice yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
About half way done with the shawlette I’m making and I really like this yarn! It has very good stitch definition, feels good in my hands, doesn’t split and has a nice sheen that is noticeable on the knitted side of the garment. All in all, I am happy with the yarn.
