These yarns are truly breathtaking -- of the kind that makes you gasp and go oh-my-goodness-gracious!
By Blue Heron Yarns, these are 88% rayon and 12% metallic. It has a marvelous coolness to it; the overall feel is rather delicious.
Each 8 ounce skein has 550 yards, thus giving you enough for many projects in one skein.
Our Winter Sky was dyed on a yarn with silver threads. Overall a play on grey, there are varying intensities of grey -- silver, pewter, charcoal --- plus some blue and aubergine. Striking -- a real stand-out.
There are lots of patterns that would look great with these.
Here is a free one that is simple and allows the yarn to really shine: Dunes from Issue #11 of Knitty.com. I've seen worked it up in this yarn -- unfortunately I don't have photos (I'd have had to rip it off the shoulders of the knitter I met).
