Another favorite today! Today’s summer yarn feature is Classic Elite Yarns Firefly. This sport weight yarn is a 75% Viscose (rayon), 25% Linen blend. Remember when I mentioned Linen yarns can be difficult to work with and hard on your hands? This one isn’t at all either! The higher Viscose content makes it a softer yarn, and easy on the hands, while still having that Linen look to it. There is even a bit of shine with this yarn, making it great for something a little dressy. I also love the slight thick/thin quality of this yarn.
We have great colors available in Firefly. Everything from fun summer brights to great classic neutrals.
Right now, I have some Firefly on the needles in the form of the Radian Yoke top that was in Knitscene a couple of years ago. I had been keeping that pattern in my queue, and once I got my hands on this yarn, I knew it was time to make it up! The piece is knitting up great with lots of drape. I’m excited to wear it at the end of the summer, and I think it will transition into the Fall really well, too!Needing some inspiration for this yarn? We have two booklets here in the shop featuring Firefly in sweaters, wraps & more. Come by Stitch Space anytime to get your summer knitting fix!
See you next week with more Yarns of Summer!
