Swans Island – Ikat Firefly

The unique Ikat Firefly yarns by Swans Island, dyed on their classic organic Merino, are equal parts whimsical and elegant. Each skein is meticulously hand-tied before saturating in a vat of rich dye. When the ties are removed, they reveal striking white resists against a single saturated tone, reminding us of fireflies sparkling against a night sky.

The Ikat Collection from Swans Island is hand-crafted using one of the oldest methods of textile decoration. Ikat which means ‘to tie’ is an Indonesian resist-dye method that has been used for Centuries to achieve striking patterns.

We carry both the ‘Watercolor‘ and ‘Firefly’ variations.
