Novelty Yarns

Novelty yarns are yarns that are designed with a special effect. This can be in the form of a thin reflector strand in the yarn, and you could for example knit or crochet a hat, shirt or vest that would make you more visible in traffic. It can also be a glitter thread that you add to your yarn project to achieve a glittery effect.

The many features of novelty yarn

The great thing about knitting or crocheting with a reflective thread is, that the reflection is not seen in daylight, but only when darkness falls, and therefore it doesn’t affect your various patterns in a negative way. There are many different versions of novelty yarn, so you can choose whether to use reflective yarn, reflector strand or glitter thread. So, you decide how big the effect should be on your crochet or knitting project.

In the long, cold winter months, novelty yarn is close to being your best friend. If you are one of the many people who daily go to work or school while it’s still dark outside, the reflective yarn or even the reflector strand can help you be more visible in traffic. It would also make sense to crochet or knit hats, mittens, sweaters, vests or scarves for your children, so they also are more likely to be to be seen in traffic.

Good for everyday life

As mentioned above, novelty yarn is very suitable for making yours and your children’s movements in traffic safer. Some may think that it's unnecessary to crochet sweaters, vests, scarves, etc.  with reflective yarn for their children, as most children often have a reflector on their jacket. However, this could become covered by a backpack or a scarf and with a crocheted or knitted hat made with reflective yarn, this is no longer a worry.

But, this is not just about traffic safety, so we would also love to tell you a little about our glitter thread. Our glitter thread can help add some extra colour to your day, or just give a little oomph to a slightly boring shirt or blouse. The glitter thread can be found in both gold and silver, so whether you like one or the other, we've got something for you.

Joyce Topping

Ordered some of this yarn and bought it without touching it, which I really like to do when I buy yarn. Was a little nervous doing so, but got some of what I ordered a couple days ago and OH MY GOSH!!! I'm totally IN LOVE with this yarn! I've already started knitting a scarf with some of it and I can't wait to get it all done and start on the next! This yarn is soft and very easy to work with. It knits up beautifully! I had my entire yarn stash stolen out of my garage last month, 4 huge boxes full of all different kinds and colors! So, I'm replenishing my stash slowly but surely and I just love this yarn!!

Dawn Uselton

I was gifted 3 balls of this for Mother's Day , my son bought it for me! I picked out the Venus colorway, I love the shifting colors in this yarn! I am teaching myself to knit. I have started on the first ball and love the sparkle that it has! It is not scratchy at all, but very soft and is knitting up unbelievably! I'm making a simple garter stitch shawl and hope to use at least two of the three balls in it. I like really big shawls. The 3rd ball I may crochet into a smaller triangle shawl for a neck wrap. I can't wait to order more in different colors.


Many Many thanks for my beautiful yarn which has just arrived, to say I am over the moon with my purchase is an understatement and also thank you for my free gift and the swiftness of posting an arrival of my yarn I can now crochet my shawl to wear at my son's wedding in 3 weeks time...will send you a picture when I have completed the garment, I will continue to purchase from you , your prices are excellent and the array of yarn is endless, again thank you from the bottom of my heart. Regards Susan

I recently ordered and received this yarn. I am currently crocheting a shawl with it. It is my first time working with this yarn weight and it is working up very easy, smoothlyand with no splitting, no knotting. I chose the colorway of Galaxy and it is self striping beautifully. To those who haven't tried this yarn before, I encourage you to try it. Fall in love with it the way I have.
