Ideal for any occasion that you want to create a garment that is in between casual and dressy.

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!

  1. Summer Clay

    Florafil shimmer is a gorgeous, worsted weight cotton yarn. It is super soft and the slight shimmer is so beautiful. I find that the crimped, twisted texture adds the most beautiful 3D marled look to slightly loose open crochet stitches without looking at all messy, but rather looks very crisp and clean. You can create a durable and thick crocheted fabric that is amazingly lightweight and soft. For example, the pictures included show what I mean in a shawl I’m currently working on that is about halfway through and pre-blocked. It is also extremely easy to crochet with and a perfect choice for beginners who want to work with a textured yarn. The best part? The cotton yarn is made in America – a rare treat!

      Hello Summer, Thank you for your detailed review about the shimmer yarn! It’s so nice to hear all the insight about how it feels while being crotched with – we would love to see a picture of your finished shawl if it’s not too much trouble <3
