Classic Elite Firefly

firefly
From the Classic Elite website: ?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.?
25% linen, 75% viscose
Hand wash cold, dry flat.
6 sts per in./ 155 yds / 50 grams
