Can't access my variant metafields

Solved

I am mystified. I have added a metafield to all my product variants called fabric_content.

 

metafieldmetafield

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can see my variant when I run this code.

 

 

{%assign current_variant = product.selected_or_first_available_variant%}
{{current_variant.option2}}

 

 

 

But when I try to view the actual metafield attached to that variant nothing shows up.

 

 

{{current_variant.option2.metafields.description.fabric_content}}

 

 

It works find if I try to access metafields on a product. Just not on the product variant. 

I've tried changing the metafield name and still nothing. 

Any suggestions of what I could be doing wrong? 

a little of this and a little of that

This is an accepted solution.

In your code you are assigning a variant to this var:

current_variant

and then you are referencing the second option in that variant. 

current_variant.option2


More info on option2 in here:
https://shopify.dev/api/liquid/objects/variant

But metafields are not attached to options, like option2. They are attached to objects like products or variants. 

So more like this:

{{ current_variant.metafields.description.fabric_content }}
