We Love a Good Story
Immediately after developing Nightshades, Harrisville decided to create an inverse of that color palette, inspired by the same dusting of color.
The challenge in developing this palette was greater than any yarn project to date for their mill. The slightest amount of color, too much or too little, takes the yarn from subdued, to overly bright. Nailing the right balance for each color was essential to creating a palette that mirrored its counterpart Nightshades.
Three years later, after many test runs and experimentation, they’ve arrived at the right color formulas. Daylights was developed from the hues cast by the sun crossing the horizon, breathing life into everything it touches. The twinkling of sunshine dancing through the trees, and its iridescent hues, inspire unexpected color combinations
This yarn is spun from the same crimpy, long, and fine wool as Nightshades. Montana-grown Cormo wool makes for a springy 3-ply, light and perfect for a heavy-wear garment, or a light accessory.

I made a cowl with Daylights and Nightshades and I really loved them. They were a pleasure to knit with and I REALLY like the shading in the yarn. Because I like lighter shades better than darker, I prefer Daylights, but I've actually gotten sweater quantities of both and enough Daylights (chirp) to do a scarf in the January NKNAL.
