Product Description

Color: Black

Red heart shimmer is an elegant yarn that contains just a hint of metallic. Made of 97-percent acrylic and 3-percent metallic polyester medium worsted material. It combines beautiful rich solid shades with a matching thread of metallic to give it just a hint of sparkle. This red heart yarn is filled with ultra fine metallic specks that create a beautiful and stylish shimmer. It is perfect for both knitting and crocheting. The acrylic fiber has a nice loft which creates a very plush fabric. Shimmer yarn is fantastic on classic worsted weight size needles but also perfect for open stitch work and hairpin lace. It is available for 4 mm knitting needle and 5 mm crochet hook. Fabric care instructions are machine wash cold, tumble dry low, do not bleach, do not iron and dry cleanable. Made in Turkey. Available in black color. Measures 280-yards length.

This yarn is enchanting! No matter how much you knit or crochet, the shimmer is so beautiful that you are already planning on what you will make next with it. The moment people notice the scarves, fingerless gloves and whatever else I have made using it, they 'oooh & aaah'.
If I could only choose one yarn to have, this would be the one!

This yarn is so soft to work with. I am making an afghan with it for a friend of mine and will make one for myself at a later date. It has just enough shimmer to make it look dressy.

The yarn is easy to work with but a little darker than it looked in picture. It is top quality yarn.

I used this yarn and the Pom Pom maker to make "indoor snowballs" they sparkled like melting snow. The yarn was fluffy and soft

A co-worker bought this yarn to make a crocheted christening blanket. I am a bit of a yarn snob, but I regularly use acrylics for crocheted blankets.

This is a very low quality yarn, it feels a bit like cheap roving. I judge a lot of yarns based on the "hand" or how it feels when knitting or crocheting. I have found that this yarn dries out my hands so badly, and feels like soft rope when using.

I would only recommend this yarn if you are making something that would not have heavy use, as it feels like it will "rat up" when washed.

I bought this yarn, showed it to my soon to be DinLaw and she wanted hats made from it for their Dec. wedding which will be outside. I have been working with it making the hats and I love how it knits up. I can't say how it washes because I haven't gotten to that point yet. It is luxuriously soft and so pretty! It's sparkle looks like the hat might be sprinkled with teeny, tiny lights as you move it around. I have purchased other yarn with the metallic thread through it but it isn't as subtile as this. I'm back for more since I have many hats to make.

I love everything about this yarn, the color, the feel, and the sparkle. Made a cowl and a pair of boot cuffs for my daughter for Christmas. She loved it!

Good! The Red Heart Shimmer yarn is prettier in person, and it is the color of the picture. The yarn is a medium.
