Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic

Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic is a lovely multicolored dyed yarn. The colors really pop off of the rayon, and the touch of metallic sparkle really adds a fun touch to the yarn.

    Comments about Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic:

    I have loved the Blue Heron Rayon Metallic ever since the first skein I bought years ago. For a while, I used it in a pulled-thread crochet scarf pattern, but now use it mostly for snoods. I have also used it as an accent thread in weaving, both woven crochet and on a rigid heddle loom, although I have never (yet?) warped with it. At 550 yds/skein, it is possible that I might be able to make a couple of vanity pieces using this as warp for a summer-weight scarf. It would certainly be an interesting experiment. The colors are gorgeous, the sparkle subtle enough, the drape is fantastic, and it is relatively easy to work with. Also, the giant 550 yd skein makes 5-6 snoods, so although the purchase price is steep, the cost of materials in each item is reasonable. Unfortunately, that same 550 yard skein means I have to limit the colors I can buy to those I can sell easily, primarily Polar Bear and Deep Blue Sea. If Tapestry ever comes back into stock, I will try that as well. I would recommend this yarn without reservation.

      Comments about Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic:

      I asked when I ordered the yarn if it could be put in a ball for me as I don't have the equipment to do this. I never received a replay and felt it would come that way, well it didn't. It took 2 weeks to find a yarn shop that would do it for me, especially in California they will wind the hanks into a ball if you purchase from them only. I will only buy this yarn in the future if you have the ability to wind it for me.

            Over the years I have come to appreciate luxury yarns and Blue Heron's Rayon Metallic is at the very top of my list. I would call it my favorite yarn! My female relatives in the U.S. and overseas have happily accepted gifts created from this yarn and I hope BH will not discontinue this product.

              Comments about Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic:

              I love this yarn. It's beautiful and easy to knit. The sparkle is great for a night item like a shawl or shrug. It's also got a really good amount of yarn in the skein. It's just too pricey for me to use for a bigger item like a sweater, although I'm not sure I would want a whole sparkle sweater. It's better for an accessory item. Maybe even a cowl like scarf.

                The Blue Rayon Metallic makes beautiful scarves and shawls. I've made three now and I've received so many compliments on each. It's a little expensive, but oh so worth the price.

                  Crochet shawl is so pretty. This yarn may be pricey but you get a lot of yardage. The sparkle is delicate and not overwhelming. Very classy.

                  Have used this product previously and have never been disappointed. I have made lace neck scarves and shawls, going to try wristers for proms and/or weddings. I would prefer the hanks were 100 yards longer and supplies more easily available.
