Berroco Captiva Metallic is the same matte cotton tape wrapped in shiny polyester/acrylic as Captiva, now with the burnished gleam of precious metals. This machine washable yarn works up into a one of a kind fabric with tons of drape, sheen, and texture. You'll love Captiva Metallic for spring- and summer-weight tunics, scarves, and more. Made in Italy.

Comments about "" Captiva Metallic:

I would love to see the return of Barroco Lumina and also, Seduce yarns. Metallics are usually very popular and make lovely garments.

    Hidden gem

    By 

    from Qualicum Beach, B.C. Canada

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Knitted Up Lovely
    • Strands Didn't Seperate

    Cons

    • Used 400 Needles

    Best Uses

    • Mini Ballerina Ravelry

    Comments about "" Captiva Metallic:

    Knitted up quickly. The yarn is a bit rough but to be expected with the metallic.
    I made a child's bolero pattern from ravelry "mini ballerina"
    I went down two sizes in needles as the knit was far too loose for the pattern but used a larger size so all turned out well.

    Fastest yarn order delivery I've ever experienced.

    Beautiful yarn but waste of money

    By 

    from Portland OR

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Beautiful sheen

    Cons

    • Tangled Every 20 Yards
    • Unable To Use Any Of It

    Best Uses

    • Trash Can Fill

    Comments about "" Captiva Metallic:

    I was so excited when it arrived because it is lovely to behold. However, by the time I hit 15 on my first chain crocheted, I hit a knot. I ended up opening and trying to but in balls 4 of them without success. I had my friends try too just to see if there was something wrong with me, and they had the same problem. Sadly, I bought 24 hanks of it and cannot use it. I haven't had time to attempt to return it yet.

    Beautiful yarn

    By

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about "" Captiva Metallic:

    Superior workability, especially if you have to repair errors or take out mistakes to begin again, beautiful sheen, and believe it or not, using it for a Twin Lace Leaf pattern enhances lace look when completed.

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about "" Captiva Metallic:

        I had never knitted with this yarn before so I did not know what to expect. The yarn is not only beautiful but the resulting sweater was surprisingly comfortable to wear. I would purchase this yarn again.
