Have fun with our glitter self-striping yarn !!
I love the colors and I am very happy that I can buy from your company.
There's a little bit of sparkle to this yarn. It's not the type that irritates your skin though! It's really good quality and easy to make anything out of. It also does NOT split or fray while working with it, like so many other brands! Now I want some in every color! I almost feel guilty making it into socks!
The Dark Side colorway is already one of the prettiest I've ever seen, but the sparkles make it absolutely magical!! This is a lovely soft fingering weight sock yarn (which I've used many times for gifts of socks and hats in other colorways-- the Blue Pansies is especially beautiful) and this time I will be making socks for myself! This colorway is another inspired self-striping design from Louise and company, and the sparkles really show up nicely against the darker hues of this colorway.
I love a lot of the rainbow colourways but they often seem to lack balance. I love this one because of the black and grey stripes which add some balance to the rainbow stripes. The sparkle is nice too, and as always the sofest sock yarn I've ever felt with nylon in it.
