this yarn is lovely, very sparkly with the sequins. Easier to work with than one would think, the sequins are small and slide easily thru the stitches. i used a #7 knitting needle and the resulting fabric was lacy and open, just like i had envisioned it. i made a narrow neck ring and the finished product is very nice. i would buy this yarn again.

  • Slippery
  • Snags

Best Uses

  • Accompaniment Yarn

Comments about true Crystal:

I used this yarn in the Juliette Shawl. It is metallic as well as pailletted, giving it much sparkle. The sequins can feel a little scratchy next to the skin, but the overall fabric is reasonably soft. It is very slippery on the needle and requires wooden or bamboo needles for ease in knitting. It does not favor correcting mistakes, as the sequins stick together when deconstructing stitches, thius I do not recommend this yarn for a novice. However, . It is a beautiful yarn and well worth the patience required to knit with it, and can be used alone or combined with another yarn for an elegant project,

Pros

  • Dazzles

Cons

  • Pain To Mix With Merino
  • Snags
  • Twists Up

Best Uses

  • Hats
  • Scarves
  • Sweaters

Comments about true Crystal:

Was recommended by artistic designer of a lace-weight scarf that was reminiscent of a river. The Crystal was used in edging and worked into the main fabric with short rows to resemble sunlight on the water and waves. The Crystal was hard to keep from snagging the merino but looked so pretty that it was worth the annoyance.

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Scarves

    Comments about true Crystal:

    Used the product to make a scarf for a friend.
    The sequins are tiny enough that you don't notice them while working with the thread, but are very noticeable when wearing the scarf--they sparkle!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Prompt delivery and arrive in great condition--well packaged.

    Very Elegant

    About Me Artist, Collector, Enthusiast

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Dyed Evenly
    • Easy To Fix
    • Good Weight
    • Knits Quickly
    • Nice Texture
    • Soft

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Scarves

      Comments about true Crystal:

      This yarn gives even the simplest of scarf patterns a very rich, elegant look. I was skeptical to knit with it at first, but the sequins did not get in my way or make the knitting difficult at all. I'll be purchasing other colors for sure, for my Christmas gift making.
