Have you had your eye on that variegated Charisma yarn over at Michaels? This bulky (5) yarn comes not only in a variety of colors, but also in a variety of “finishes”—all of which are made with 100% acrylic yarn.
First, we have the normal skeins of Charisma yarn, which give you 109 yards. These normal skeins come in nineteen variegated colors and sixteen solid colors. The variegated skeins basically solid colors which change every so often to have multiple colors in one skein. A 9 mm knitting needle or an 8 mm crochet hook is suggested for these skeins.
Then, we have the Charisma Big! skeins, which give you a whopping 273 yards! These skeins come in eight variegated colors and eight solid colors—most of which cannot be found in the small-sized skeins. Since these are basically just bigger versions of the normal Charisma skeins, a 9 mm knitting needle or an 8 mm crochet hook is still the suggested size.
Next, we have the Charisma Heather yarn, which gives you 93 yards. This yarn comes in seven different colors, which are basically two colors mixed together to give that nice “heather” look. A 9 mm knitting needle or an 8 mm crochet hook is also suggested for this yarn.
Next, we have the Charisma Tweed yarn, which also gives you 93 yards and comes in seven different colors. These skeins are basically solid colors with what can only be described as “fuzz of a different color stuck in them.” A 9 mm knitting needle or an 8 mm crochet hook is suggested for this yarn, as well.
Lastly, we have the Charisma Marble yarn, which gives you 60 yards. This yarn comes in seven different colors and basically looks like you’re working with three different-colored strands of yarn. For this yarn, a 9 mm knitting needle or a 9 mm crochet hook is suggested for use.
