When Swans Island first introduced Firefly with their Aurora Kits, it was one of the most popular items we'd ever featured. We and our customers alike fell in love with the reverse speckle patterning of this ikat dyed yarn.
Our love for Firefly has only grown since then, and now Swans Island has released some garment designs to supplement the original accessories collection. Blaire is a lovely, universal piece that is simple to knit and stunning to wear. This one size piece is somewhere between a ruana, a poncho, a shawl, and a vest... but one thing is for certain: it is infinitely wearable.
Beyond the unique dye technique, there are lots of things to love about Swans Island Firefly. This fingering weight yarn is made of 100% Organic Merino wool, and has a generous 525 yards per skein.
We are loving the boxy Cecily tee with cuffed sleeves; a fun and feminine look for summer that is easy to layer over a dress or a blouse.
Create bold stripes with Firefly and a coordinating solid color (like Malabrigo Sock) in this casual, boatneck pullover. We love this look with the dark sapphire Firefly next to the natural, although to prevent mishaps we would recommend doing a cool rinse of a dark hand dyed yarn before striping it with a light solid.
