Tips for Working with Glisten

Glisten is a new wool from Rainbow Gallery.  It comes on cards and is four plies of Merino wool and a metallic filament braided together.  It is not meant to be plied.  There are 26 colors currently.  Think Silk Lame Braid but with wool.  I have a small sample in soft gray that I haven't used yet but it is very pretty stuff.

You can see how spectacular Glisten is in turkeywork here.

Suzie at Enriched Stitch has written an article with tips for stitching with Glisten which is very useful.
