Stiletto yarn is a fingering weight yarn. Knit mainly for socks, it would also knit or crochet up beautifully in a lightweight scarf, top or baby's garment. I can see it crocheted in a lacy wrap. This would make it a perfect Gift for the holidays coming up. The 7% Lurex puts a bit of sparkle into your piece. The summer sun or the evening lights would make it sparkle.

Block it heavily with a hot steamy iron (or kill it by pressing it) to make a whispy flowing fabric.

I stock ALL colors of Plymouth Yarn Stiletto Sock Yarn! It is online and ready to for your hooks and needles.
