10 Word Yarn Review: Red Heart Shimmer

The Yarn:

Red Heart Shimmer . 97% acrylic, 3% metallic polyester. 280 yards to a skein.

The Color I Used:

Black (which has a silver sparkle).

Here’s how it looks in a dc V-stitch

Here’s how it looks on my sister’s scarf which is fpdc, bpdc textured (the blue is a different shimmery yarn: Lanalux)

My 10-Word Succinct Yarn Review:

  1. Sparkly
  2. Easy-Care
  3. Affordable
  4. Cushiony
  5. Worsted
  6. Multi-purpose
  7. Stashable
  8. Comfortable
  9. Touch-of-pop
  10. Yes (as in I do intend to use it again)

In my opinion, some Red Heart types of yarn are great and others I wouldn’t really use. What is your favorite type of Red Heart yarn?
