Katia Hechizo

Katia's Hechizo is a cloud of extrafine merino and superfine alpaca with a real silver (or gold) lining! A chainette of metallic polyester with a puff of softness all around makes up this single ply, heavy worsted weight yarn. Hechizo's glamorous sparkle is tempered by its soft neutral colors, so garments and accessories worked in Hechizo are glitzy enough for evening but not too fancy for daytime. And Hechizo feels great against your skin.

      I used this for hats and a scarf. Alone to light and snagged a lot. Mixed with a light weight like "Whipped Up" Alpaca it is wonderful.

      • Nice Texture
      • Soft

      Cons

      • Item Close To Skin

      Comments about Katia Hechizo:

      Knits a feather light and soft piece quickly. Although labeled superfine alpaca and merino, I wouldn't have guessed this from the appearance alone. It looks more like thin roving as there are no plies and no sheen (beyond the polyester thread). Not a criticism, just something to keep in mind. The soft nature makes it a good choice for a scarf or something close to the skin. The metallic thread is not hard or itchy. I gave it 3 stars because it was nice, but not memorable.

      Comments about Katia Hechizo:

      I haven't worked with this yarn yet, but am very pleased with the quality of the product for the price & will probably knit a shawl with it. It would make a lovely holiday sweater, scarf or hat as well. Seems to be a nice, snuggly yarn with just the right amount of glitz to it to make it special.
