Moonstone Metallic - Very pleasant turquoise and golden brown colours are mixed with unpleasant shades of rusty orange and a burgundy-brown. To bypass the latter resulted in using twice as much yarn as normal.
This yarn knits up beautifully. The colours fade in and out and the metallic bits give it an added sparkle.
I made the Essex Street triangle shawl pattern by lion brand and it came out perfectly. The yarn is soft and cozy, but not too hot. The colours are really beautiful.
I just love the color!! It's not worsted weight, mine is barely fingering!! Bit it's nice to knit a shawl, I will maybe buy another color ;)
This product was easy to knit with and turned out beautiful. Shawl was a little small so You may want to use two balls.
