Super Sparkle is a lovely soft 4-ply super-washed Merino with the addition of a silver Lurex shimmer in a wonderful finger-weight yarn. The Lurex is plied in as a continuous filament. Two of the four plies of this yarn have the lurex embedded in it. The lurex is silver and stays that way no matter how Blue Moon dyes it! Super Sparkle is so soft and shiny. Blue Moon has been looking for a yarn with some shimmer in it for a while, but all the bases were rough in hand and they seemed to shed. Super Sparkle is so very soft and because of the construction does not shed!! There are so many fun and creative knits you can dream up for your Super Sparkle!
