I love Vanna White's Glamour yarn for making small items, but can't find it in the Christmas green color I want. Any suggestions for a good glitter or sparkle yarn in green?

You might try Lion Brand Yarn's website since they are the ones who produce Vanna's Choice. You may be able to find it in green on the website.

Jackie, The LB yarns have 2 kinds of glitter yarn but the closest to green is their Glamour Teal. Those sparkle type yarns are a rather fine weight so maybe you could use the sparkle stuff along with another yarn in the green you want.

I don't know what you want to knit but you might create an interesting effect - or there may be some plain or neutral sparkle yarn at your LYS that you could add to the green yarn too.

P.S. Red Heart yarns used to have a sparkle yarn for Xmas called
'Holiday' Craft Yarn. That had the kind of green I think you want.
You can check and see if it's still available.

I only have part of a skein of their white whick I use to sparkle up small gifts. Perhaps you could find some in a stash somewhere? Good Luck!
