This yarn is a little pricey, but adds a lot of glitz when used for accessories. The aluminum looks like bright sequins, without the trouble of knitting them in! The yarn is classified as a worsted, and knits up to a worsted gauge, but feels a little looser, a little limp, without the same body of a worsted wool. However, that would make it very drapey if you decided to splurge on enough yarn for a metallic tank top, for example. I know I won't, being the jeans type, but it did make a great little cap for my DD:
As you can see, she chose black, with silver sparkles. This yarn comes in a narrower color range, and my personal favorite was cream with gold sparkles, but this is a close second, and would make a very glamorous top or wrap. A warp would benefit from larger needles and a tank top or tiny sweater from a denser gauge. Just in time for New Years... see if it turns up at an after-Christmas sale today and make a party outfit.
