Fireflies is inspired by the Fireflies Rising shawl by Curious Handmade. I pictured a summer campfire under a deep midnight blue sky punctuated by the light of stars and dancing fireflies. It works up as a semi-solid with lighter colourflashes spread throughout, and it pairs wonderfully with Turning Tide.
Tanami is an absolutely incredible yarn. It's a super-soft blend of baby camel and silk, giving a perfect blend of sheen with a subtle halo. It has amazing drape and lovely texture, and knits to a light 4ply/sock weight gauge, but of course can be knit loosely for lace projects. This is a true luxury yarn that just begs to be knit in to something special.
Yarn: 50% baby camel / 50% silk
Meterage: Approx 400m/ 437 yards
Travelknitter yarns are all hand-dyed in East London using only professional-grade dyes. I recommend that you treat the yarn kindly by hand-washing in order to keep the colours looking their best.
While I do my best to capture the colours as true to life as possible, please keep in mind that computer monitors vary in how they show colours, and there will always be some variation between dye batches due to the nature of hand dyeing.
