Shimmer Five

Shimmer Five
The Shiny Point Five
This season Colinette has taken the concept of thick and thin yarn to a whole new level with the introduction of Shimmer Five. This yarn is a marriage between old world charm and the shine of the new age. We’re used to many types of shimmer yarn, but until now we’ve never met one which has managed to retain a wooly flavor. The new Shimmer Five booklet has a pattern for a coat that is as outstanding in its look as it is practical in its use. We are looking forward to getting to know this yarn a little better because we can already see the possibilities are endless.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Just a reminder, this yarn, as all Colinette, is individually hand-painted. There are no dye lots and every skein is unique. Elise really likes the differences and when she uses the skeins, she places them arbitrarily. We do have a suggestion for people who are more organized. Roll up two skeins and every two rows change skeins as if you are striping with different colors. As a result, the differences in the colors will blend, and you will not be able tell where one stops and another starts.
