Riverside Studio's Firefly for The Knit Cafe
Firefly is a custom made colour created for the Knit Café by Quebecois hand dyer Riverside Studio. Riverside Studio makes gorgeous yarns that we are thrilled to offer as part of our revolving menu of yarns here at The Knit Café bricks and mortar. Kathryn, who is the talent behind this enterprise was kind enough to make us a custom colourway for The Knit Cafe's Yarn Club 2016. It was a winner! We are addicted to this colour and could not let it go. Since our Yarn Club yarns are only for Yarn Club Members we asked Riverside Studio if she would recreate this colour on one of her other lovely yarn-bases for us. She agreed and the result is a batch of beautiful Firefly coloured Super Sock Yarn!
Super Sock is comprised of merino wool with nylon mixed in for strength so it is perfect for sock knitting. It would also be wonderful for a shawl or even sweater knitting. Try out this yarn on The Knit Cafe's Sweet Sock, Maud Sock, or Bonnie Bandit patterns!
Firefly has a wonderful and unique colour dispersion. It looks like little copper fireflies in a midnight colour sky. We think you will like it!
