This Gold was wonderful, except it did not work the same as the other Red Heart colors I used, so my project suffered. Gold was very soft and silky. When crocheted it appears to shine and drape nicely. But it was worked next to colors that had thicker, coarser strands that crocheted up very stiffly and didn't drape. The Gold sections were thinner than the rest of the areas. Colors used: Hot red - thick and very fibrous, poofy in areas (which I had to cut out). Black and white - not as thick as Hot red but worked up stiffly. I made a Marine Corps Afghan. I will not use Red Heart for another one of these projects. Directions called for I hook but I had to use a J because of the coarse/ thick yarn. This made the Gold suffer, which needed the smaller hook.
