ABOUT THE YARN
We color this glow in the dark wool using artisan methods. In daylight, the yarn is a pretty green. Then, when the lights go out, it glows a cheery luminous neon green. You will be surprised by how brightly it can glow!
What makes it glow?
We use a phosphorescent color (totally safe!) to achieve the glow in the dark effect. The phosphorescent molecules in the wool absorb energy (from sunlight or artificial lighting), store it, and then release that energy over time. So, the glow we see in the dark is actually stored energy being returned to us. Isn’t that interesting!? This means that the yarn will glow brighter and for longer when exposed to strong light for a long period.
Is it safe?
Yes. Absolutely. All of our yarns are colored using certified safe (and natural, where possible) pigments and dyes. The phosphorescent color used here is totally inert.
How can I use it?
You’re only limited by your imagination. Others have made glow in the dark purses, dresses, toys, and blankets. Or how about glow in the dark stars to decorate a child’s bedroom?
