Glitter Yarn

Hi there, thank you so much for your lovely comments yesterday, it does feel really comforting to be back in touch with Blogland - I have really missed it lately, but sometimes life just gets too busy and I can't seem to fit it in.  There was quite a bit of interest in the Glitter Yarn I was using for the Shawl I showed you yesterday. 

As you can see, it is called Reflection and is 10% Mohair, 10% Wool, 75% Acrylic and 5% Metallic.  I bought it at the Old Loom Mill, near Hailsham, East Sussex - (I looked but I don't think they have a website) - its a collection of old mill buildings where they now have a fabric shop, wool shop and lots of craft stalls - oh and of course a lovely coffee shop.  They had a shawl made up and it did look pretty so I just couldn't pass it by PLUS if you purchased the wool you got the pattern free!  Its only a hand typed out one but hey thats no problem!  Oh and you only need two 100 gram balls of wool and it is worked on a 5.50mm uk hook so it is quite a loose drapey fabric. It was finished off with long tassels.  I think they had other colours but I can't remember which!  Must dash now - can't believe it but this is my 99th post - I am limping towards the 100!!!!  I cant think what I have rambled on about for that many posts - will have to look back.

Have a lovely weekend

Lovely to talk to you

Speak soon xx


  1. Yes the yarn does look pretty but is it prickly ? Sometimes that metallic stuff is not so soft though I don't suppose it matters much when you wear it over the top of clothes.
    Keep rambling, you're in good company !!

  2. Oh that looks lovely. I can imagine purple and lilac and mauve...hmm deicious!

  3. I sure love this yarn. Perfect for the fall season.
