Céilí is the Irish word for dance. This colorway was inspired by a statue of dancing figures at the base of the Rock of Cashel in Ireland. It marked the entrance to the Brú Ború Cultural Center, which focuses on sharing Irish heritage through live performances of traditional song and dance, as well as local cuisine and crafts. The statue features three figures dancing in a circle with one figure holding a tambourine. It was a rainy day when I visited and this cheerful sight brightened it up!

If you would like to see how this colorway works up, please see the picture of the cable design.
*Important note* – Due to the colors used to create this tonal kettle dyed green, you may notice some subtle speckles of different colors, such as blue, in the yarn. This is due to a certain dye color ‘breaking’ as it dissolved into the water. ‘Breaking’ is a dye term used when the color actually breaks down into the colors used to create the powdered dye. Please see the closeup picture of the yarn. This does not detract from the colorway in my opinion, but I want my buyers to be aware. The speckles will be noticeable when working with the yarn, but will not be noticeable in the finished project except upon very close examination. Please see the cable design to see what I mean.
Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many skeins as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
