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:

      It knit quickly and smoothly. The lacy rectangular shawl that I knit got lots of compliments. The only complaint that I would have was the color "Old Gold" had too much green in it.

        Comments about Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic:

        Love this yarn! I bought a hank of this yarn before I really learned how to knit, which wasn't the best thing considering the price. Tried to knit a shawl and just could not master the pattern. Stashed it for a couple years, tried the pattern again and it turned out awesome. Problem was that I ran out of yarn about 85% complete so ordered another hank. Had the leftover hank stashed for another couple of years and decided it would be perfect for a Carol Sunday pattern Clair DeLune. The metallic in the yarn is just enough. I ordered another hank....That is almost 1100 yards of yarn. I thought for sure I would have enough, but 95% complete and I ran out of yarn, so just ordered another hank.... It is very drapey, and with the variation of the colors is beautiful yarn. Need to find a infinity scarf as it will be perfect.

          VERY EXPENSIVE YARN but worth the price for the yardage. They should sell it in 1/2 skeins also. If they did I could afford to make a scarf in everyone of their BEAUTIFUL colorways.

          lovely sheen and drape for lightweight sweater. Just enough gold thread to make it suitable for evening wear and not too much that you cannot wear it in the daytime

          service and delivery fast. about a week to Canada. No duties to be paid.

            • Snoods

            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.

              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.
