Florafil Shimmer Yarn
Florafil ™ Shimmer is a premium Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn with a shiny rayon boucle yarn twisted around our Super Soft Cotton roving. This yarn has the same strength of conventional ring-spun cotton. The colors in this collection are similar to our regular Florafil and inspired by wildflowers found across the United States. But with a unique twist, and that is a twist of rayon boucle!
The Florafil Shimmer Yarn collection includes 7 solid colors and 4 Space Dyed yarns. Our solid colored yarns include our most popular color White Lily. A beautiful bright white, perfect for creating a stunning bridal bolero or shrug. In this collection we also have our Space Dyed yarns. Coral Hibiscus is our most popular yarn from this collection. This yarn would make a prefect sweater or wrap to dress up any occasion. Florafil Shimmer Yarn is perfectly soft with just the right amount of elegant shine! Ideal for any occasion that you want to create a garment that is in between casual and dressy.
Our Florafil is made of cotton roving yarn. Cotton roving allows our cotton to be closest to its natural state it is unprocessed and unspun. There is a nylon binder as in our regular Florafil and a Rayon Boucle binder which gives this yarn its beautiful Shimmer. The two binders also secure the roving to prevent any piling on finished projects while creating a unique twist to the yarn.
