Lion Brand Gold Leaf Yarn

I never would have thought of yarn with gold leaf on it… but the folks at Lion Brand Yarns did, and boy is it cool. Lion Brand Yarn is one of my go-to yarns as they offer almost everything I could possibly imagine, even yarns I have not yet imagined.

The Gold Leaf ® Yarn by Lion Brand Yarns comes in 7 awesome colors, each with either gold or silver flaking.  I had the opportunity to work with the Black/Gold color way. 

When I first saw the yarn in person, I was afraid the gold flaking would peel off as I was working with it, but that fear quickly went away.  Like all other Lion Brand Yarns I have worked with, the quality of this yarn was exceptional.  The flaking stayed intact, even through a gentle hand washing.

This yarn would work great for knit cowls, knit hats, and knit scarves, but as soon as I got my hands on it I envisioned an adorable capelet for my little girl.  Since this yarn is super bulky weight, my project worked up super-fast.  The gold leaf randomly showed throughout the pattern, creating a fabulous and fancy design. 

I’d definitely work with this yarn again.  Gold Leaf ® Yarn from Lion Brand Yarns will take any knit pattern from drab to fab. Whether you're looking for a night out on the town or a comfy night in, this yarn is great for just about any type of project. Look like a million bucks for something you created yourself.
