WHAT'S HER STORY
The Gang’s first ever British sourced and spun yarn; Glitterball Yarn is a disco-ready remix of 100% naturally renewable wool and look-at-me lurex. Scoured, combed and spun in the Yorkshire countryside, the soft and silky wool is lovingly produced by eco-conscious suppliers and the finest breed of sheep. We take it from farmyard to fabulous by adding a subtle hint of sparkle (who could resist?!), so you can shimmy on from dusk ‘til dawn. See you on the dancefloor.
WHAT’S IT LIKE TO KNIT WITH?
Fun (because its glittery!), soft to touch, and fine like all fingering yarn - so we recommend it for more experienced stitchers in The Gang!
WHAT CAN I MAKE?
Socks! You can also try it out with lacey shawls or lightweight scarves.
WORKS WELL WITH…
Stocking stitch, rib stitch, open pointelle eyelet stitches.
