Ice Yarns, Elegant Metallic Cotton – yarn review with FREE Head-Scarf Pattern



Ice Yarns, Elegant Metallic Cotton is an cotton yarn mixed with a metallic thread, made in Turkey.

  • It comes in 50g balls with 130m per ball.
  • 88% cotton, 12% metallic lurex.
  • 3mm-4mm needles are recommended.
  • Gauge – 10″ x 10″ equals  30 rows by  22 stitches.
  • Ice Yarns have 18 beautiful colours of the Metallic Cotton, 12 of which can be purchased in my online store.  
  • The label recommends to wash at 30°C.
  • The weight of the Ice Yarn Metallic Cotton yarn is marked and advertised as a number 2 weight (sport or baby) on the label, but I would say it is close to an 8 ply/dk.

My Observations

So far I have crocheted approximately 8 headscarves with a 6mm hook in the Ice Yarn Elegant Metallic Cotton.

  • With every ball, I have found the end very easy to find in the middle of the ball. 
  • I have found it easy to crochet with. No splitting. Using the larger hook, it starts to feel like it will get caught on the hook, but never actually does.
  •  If you love a bit of sparkle, you will love these.
  • It’s hard to tell from the website pictures, but some of the colours have a silver thread through them and some have a similar colour metallic thread through them.


I made a couple of small swatches of the Ice Yarns Metallic Cotton just like the headbands. I wanted to see just how well the yarn held up with the metallic thread, so I washed and dried one of them 5 times. I used a normal cold wash cycle each time and just air dried. It should be noted that I did wash it with a load of other clothes of similar colour, but definitely not of a delicate nature.

  • The one main difference washing made, is, it did shrink a bit. 
  • It didn’t seem to look much different.
  • The metallic thread looks just as good as before washing, so I was happy about that. 😊
  • It didn’t take very long to air dry.
  • It still felt the same after washing and drying.

In Summary

  • I love the Ice Yarns Elegant Metallic Cotton Yarn!! The metallic thread that runs through the yarn makes it look beautiful. I find it hard to imagine that anyone could walk past something made with it, without admiring it 🥰.
  • As well as ladies and girls accessories, I think it would make up beautifully into garments as well.
  • I imagine the metallic thread may be a bit more delicate than the actual cotton, so I would definitely dry it naturally to protect it.
  • I would love to know what else you have made using the Ice Yarns Metallic Cotton in the comments below ⬇️.
