Stardust over Malaga - meet Malaga Glitter. Same deliciously soft yarn, but spun with a fine glittery thread, that can be seen but not felt! The amount of glitter is just right to add something special to your projects; perhaps for a festive occasion or just as some extra bling for everyday?
Malaga Glitter is, as the other variants, produced in a handy pullskein where you start from inside the skein. It can be found in the wide color range of the single colored Malaga variant, so the various versions can easily be combined e.g. in stripes or as funky edges on a jumper or blanket.
Malaga Glitter is a premium acrylic, so it is spun in a very high quality. It means that the yarn is worked in several steps, reminiscent of wool production. Moreover, Malaga Glitter has undergone a Hi-Bulk process where the yarn is steamed during production causing slight contraction, resulting in a more comfortable, soft fullness.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

I am loving this yarn! I got color 02 (natural white glitter) to indicate significant dates as part of a temperature blanket project (the main colors for this project will be from Megaball Aran yarn). I was hesitant when ordering color 02 since it was hard to tell what color the glitter was from the photos in the product listing - I'm happy to report that the based of the yarn is more of a cream color, and the glitter thread is a gold color! It was exactly what I had in mind and I can't wait to see it worked up with the rest of my colors over the course of the year. So far, the yarn has been very easy to work with - no splitting, but sometimes you just have to make sure you are also grabbing the glitter thread when pulling up a loop or inserting the hook into your work. Would definitely use this product again and also try it in other colors!
Glitter yarn... Such a contrast in roughness and softness between the two types of yarn that comprise the final product. However, in this version of glitter yarn, the composition blends together well. And it. is. soft! Oh so soft!
While I have already decided on what to make with one of the colours I ordered, I am still mulling over the options for the other colour: so. many. options. Spoilt for choice!
I am making a pocket shawl with this yarn using a J (6mm) hook. This yarn is so soft and smooth, it is just sliding right off my hook. I am also using a neck light while crocheting. It is like a lovely starry night with all the twinkling. Can't wait the finish this shawl so I can order more to make another! Thank you Hobbii for such gorgeous yarn.
Smooth and soft compared to many glitter yarns. I love that the Burgundy color has a burgundy glitter thread - usually glitter yarns use either silver or gold so the colored metallic thread was what sold me. Not sure what I will make with this yet but i swatched it and loved the glimmery sparkle the light picked up. Subtle but definitely there!
WOW WOW WOW!! This yarn is so soft and so sparkly. I was worried it would be scratchy and hard to work with but NOT AT ALL! And the SPARKLE!! It is so shiny, I can’t believe it. The only heads up is that if you’re re-spinning your yarn, be careful of the glitter. It can sometimes get stuck. I cannot wait to buy more of this!
