Sale! Alux

$3.99 - $4.79 50g / Skein  Original Price: $7.99


Softest baby alpaca glistens with metallic fibers like fresh dew-laden grass glittering on a bright, clear morning in the Andean highlands. Either golden or silvery thread bedazzles every color of this opulent yarn, perfect for enchanting accessories and gleaming garments. And with a full third of the fiber content dedicated to shiny sparkle, the dazzle here is an unabashedly scintillating proclamation rather than a subtle hint of twinkle. Any fan of glitter and sparkle is sure to swoon, especially with the ethereal softness of Baby Alpaca to ensure next-to-skin cuddliness. Whether adding a bit of glitz with an accessory or going full glam with a light-weight top, Alux is all you need when you absolutely must be fabulous.

This yarn does split, but that's to be expected with having multiple types of fiber twisted together. It worked up nice and the metal thread did not break. The finished product looks so pretty.

this is a great yarn. It does split if not careful. However, that is not uncommon for this style yarn. I have seem similar yarn for much more and not even close to value.

I’m using a size 3 needle and the golden thread catches and the yarn splits making it less than perfect. A very pretty and soft yarn with a bit of sparkle

Just opened up my box of yarns. This Alux is exactly as described. I purchased the color Lynx and cast on with size US 1 needle. With those small of stitches I did have some trouble catching the metal thread. The next size needle next to me was an US 8! I loved the looser, squishy result from that size AND the snagging stopped. Good stuff!
