Fiber of the Week - June 30, 2010

What a treat! My favorite yarn in the whole world is the fiber of the week. It's Rayon Metallic by Blue Heron and it's 20% off. If you are not familiar with this yarn, it's hand-dyed, 88% rayon and 12% metallic. The metallic thread does not show up well in the photos, but it is much less subtle in person. Because this is a rayon yarn, it is shiny and slinky. If this yarn were a person, it would be a ballroom dancer, but not an amateur, definitely a world-class professional! Currently available in 44 of Blue Heron's magnificent colorways. If you are a Ravelry member, please look at some of the projects made from this yarn for inspiration.

The specs:

88% Rayon, 12% Metallic

This yarn will be on sale until middday Wednesday, July 7. Happy Independence Day to our American customers and Happy Canada Day to our northern neighbors. (Come to think of it, the sparkle in the Rayon Metallic kind of does remind me of fireworks!)
