This yarn can best be described as a wispy fringe (some designers refer to it as Wispy Fringe). It has pieces of transparent fiber that give a glistening effect. The glistening effect of this yarn is more pronounced with long stitches, as less of the fringe is pulled into the canvas. Arctic Rays also makes wonderful French Knots. (1 strand 14-18 Long Stitches)
Stunning star-shaped design with each point featuring a different bouquet of flowers. Has an old-world charm reminiscent of Spain. Great as a sampler to learn many different techniques or play with colour for added excitement! Design size: 11" round.

A word about Gold Rush XS, try this on both 11 count Aida and 18 count canvas. This metallic can be used to replace 4-5 strands of blending filament for those who do not like to ply up. The problem of filament curling up on itself will be solved when you use Gold Rush XS.
Easy to stitch & has a special subdued elegant sparkle. Some rayon strands are replaced with metallic ones giving it a little more body. Works well for tent stitch, longer straight & diagonal stitches, & French Knots. Follow stitching tips for regular Neon Rays.
