Red Heart Shimmer Yarn is one of those "oooohhhh" yarns. The pictures don't do this yarn justice. The shimmer on this yarn is so very pretty. The shimmer effect is made from a super fine metallic strand wrapped around the main plies of yarn. The result is very fine gorgeous specks of sparkle throughout the yarn. It really does shimmer, the shimmer is very subtle and is very beautiful. The shimmer is like fairy dust, so elegant. What is more, the yarn is soft. You are sure to love what you make with this yarn.
