Suggested substitutes

Unfortunately, Kidsilk Amore Shimmer is an unusual yarn and we don't know of many close matches. The following suggestions might work in some projects. We've tried our best to match gauge and behavior.
Boutique Twilight (45% match) $$$$$
This yarn is chained rather than fuzzy chain, so the finished item will have a different look.
The gauge almost matches, but you may need to use smaller needles. Swatch to check gauge.
The fiber content is different. This yarn contains: Acrylic (61%), Nylon (25%), Polyester (9%) and Metallic (5%)
This yarn has less drape. It may not be a suitable substitute if your pattern is designed to hang loosely without clinging.
This yarn may not feel as soft as the original.
The warmth of the fibers of this yarn are a reasonable match.
This yarn comes in 100g / 54m balls. For each ball of the original yarn you will need 0.69 balls of this.
