My DIL picked the yarn because of the sparkly look so I was VERY disappointed when as soon as I touched it all the sparkles came off; it was as if Tinkerbell had come and sprinkled fairy dust, there were silver specks everywhere in the air. It was no fun working with this yarn since the silver came off on my hands, my clothing, everywhere. I finished the project, but still have to block it. I think soon it will be just a solid color yarn, so I am very disappointed with this yarn. I wonder if I have a bad skein or if anyone else has this same experience.
