Aurora Borealis

An unusual yarn made specifically for a manufacturer who changed his mind. They are all high glitter, the yarn is wrapped  in a multi coloured glitter and it takes on different colours depending on what colours are in the skein. It is very difficult to get a good picture of yarns with glitter. #8 is a beautiful gold but you can't see that in the picture. The yarn itself does not have stretch but when knit it has a lot of stretch, in either direction as well as on the bias. I would suggest that you use very large  needles for a lacy mesh look.

Composition: 55% cotton, 34% nylon, 11% metal

  Knit samples of #3 2 kits left , #5sold out, #8sold out

Stole knit in Aurorborealis

72" long and 24" wide

Knit on a 15mm needle
and we have lots of
15mm needles straight and circular if you need some.

Below are the colours that I had before the show and there are only two colourways left but I am hoping that I can get a bit more of this yarn so I have left the colourways up for now

$30.00 Kit

I have smaller balls of these yarns that you could use as an accent with another yarn, or a cowl/scarf or some sort of fibre art. I made up a few i-cords to see how it looked. They could be used as jewellery or trim on a sweater or pillows. There are lots of ways you could use a bit of this yarn.
