Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 250 – Firefly Dayflower Shawl

Sometimes it's all I can do to stop myself from filling my queue with projects in Firefly. This sportweight blend of linen and rayon is truly unique, with a glowing sheen and a cool texture in a variety of stitch patterns. It's feminine, has great stitch definition and drape, and can look just a little bit fancy.

Speaking of fancy, this shawl from Amy Loberg is just the thing to wrap yourself in when you want to add a touch of elegance. The shape is graceful and easy to wear, and Firefly comes in a rainbow of stunning shades. Choose one to match your favorite sundress!

The Yarn:

25% linen, 75% viscose

Firefly is a warm-weather yarn with a subtle sheen and wonderful hand. The juxtaposition of the linen with a light-catching sheen gives it a distinctly feminine look. Firefly drapes wonderfully at a wide range of gauges - knit loosely for elegant lace or more tightly for stockinette fabrics.
