About the Yarn:
Red Heart Hygge Charm is a worsted weight 97% acrylic and 3% other fibers yarn. Each ball has 432 yards and comes in 16 different colors.
What are the other fibers you may be asking. Inside the ply of the yarn you will find a fine piece of metallic fiber.
When I first heard that there was a metallic fiber I wasn’t sure that I would enjoy working with the yarn. In the past when there has been metallic in the yarn it has hurt my fingers as I continued to work with it. That is NOT the case with this yarn.
Even with the metallic fiber running through the yarn is still super soft. I was able to knit the entire sweater without and discomfort using the yarn. Metallic in yarn in the past has meant something very noticeable. With Hygge Charm it is just a light touch to make your finished piece sparkle.
