Patons Metallic Yarn is rated 3.1052631578947367 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is the diva of yarns I really, really wanted to love this yarn because SHINY. However, it is too much of a pain to work with. It isn't actual spun yarn, but a woven tube of the metallic color stuffed with black fluff, and no matter how careful I was, the black fluff started poking out through the holes in the weave of the metallic color. It was slippery when working up the stitches, but if I needed to rip any stitches, the black fluff would get tangled and make ripping nigh unto impossible. I would have gladly dealt with the slipperiness if only this yarn had been better constructed, without the awful black fluff. Sadly, as it is now, I will not be buying or using it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty is its only good point This product is difficult to work with in that it snags on everything - pages of your pattern, fingernail ridges you didn't know you had, and everything in between. Even itself. The fiber inside sometimes works its way out, the thickness varies from thin to bulky, and it's the worst yarn I have ever used. I spent almost 80 hours on a sweater, and at the second wearing it was so fuzzy and worn looking it appeared ready for the rag bag. It's a very pretty yarn, but the goodness ends right there. Never again. This product has me questioning the quality and reliability of their other yarns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my spectacular cape! I know this yarn and searched for it glad I did. I am using several colors in this cape and it really pops the colors around it. Wait until you see the blue/teal cape!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from knits smoothly My daughter-in-law, who doesn't knit or crochet,  brought me a skein of Metallic and I made the free pattern Dazzle scarf with it.  It worked up smoothly and quickly! I am purchasing other colors and making these sarves as gifts...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but quirky Absolutely gorgeous knit into a fabric but has to be handled carefully. I ruined two skeins because I wound the yarn on a ball winder resulting in the black core stretching and popping randomly out of the metallic rayon tube--looked terrible. Also, make sure you have no hang nails or rough spots on your hands as you'll snag the yarn while working with it. Otherwise, my "quality of this product" rating would have been higher than average.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Yarn Two weeks ago during a shopping trip to Joann's I bought 2 skeins pewter and Patons Metallic Pattern booklet. I made the Silver Screen Scarf for my mom and quickly got a request from a friend for one in gold. The finish is soft, shiny and folds beautifully. I used metal hooks, kept an easy tension and did not ball because yarn is somewhat delicate however, the finished product was one of the most beautiful scarves I have ever made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible consistency! I've been working with this yarn the past couple hours. I made a good section of my shawl and a few eyes for the skulls that are in the pattern. I've been crocheting for about 17 years now, and I have never seen any yarn that has a few yards with consistent width before going on to have thin yarn then thick then thin. It is a bear to work with because of this consistency, and I'm beginning to think this is going to be a practice version of the final production because, if any other part of this shawl looks as bad as the eyes, I won't feel right sending this to my friend as her Christmas gift.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to knit with I bought several balls in different colors. This yarn snags and pills really quickly even as you are knitting with it. Two of the balls had breaks in it not just once but twice. One ball had uneven strands which spoiled the look of the finished product. I was making infinity scarves as gifts for Christmas but gave up on the yarn after several attempts. I knit a lot so was definitely disappointed as the yarn itself looks gorgeous and is so soft.
