Regia – Soft Glitter
What is the best way to wear glitter because they make you happy, but without them being obvious, like when you have a big work meeting for example? Hand-knitted socks, of course! And Schachenmayr Regia’s Soft Glitter is the perfect yarn for that!
Sheen and softness, here is what the brand promises you with this pretty yarn. And it actually contains a fine silvery thread that brings some spark to it. Plus, contrary to some blends containing lurex, this one is all softness.
And with its soft and easy-to-wear colours, you will be able to wear you glittery socks in every circumstances! For example, a pair of fine lacy ankle socks will add some glamour to a festive evening. Or a thin cable running all the length of a pair of mid-calf socks will make them a bit fancy but completely wearable with a work suit. After all, we all need a bit of glitter in our every day life! 😉
