Cheap Novelty Yarn

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, metallic yarn 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.

Unique Reflective Yarn and Yarn with Glitter

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 color 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.

What our customers say about Novelty Yarns


This yarn is gorgeous. It's easy to work with and my project turned out so well.


I love this yarn so much! I knitted a beanie with it and it turned out amazing!


Despite having glitter woven through it, this yarn is very soft. I have knitted a beautiful shawl in colour 06 and am thrilled with the result. I have reordered this range, but more balls of each colour, because they are only small(ish) balls. I did find the glitter tended to shred in my knitting machine though, and was not good at patterning. I will stick to stocking stitch and let the yarn do the work.

Cara Randall

This yarn is so super soft! I just got my yarn today and I am so excited with the colors. The skeins were smaller than I expected, but it is a thin yarn. Next paycheck if there is any left I will be ordering again.

Linda Boyd

Beautifully soft, ordered 2 of each colour, colours are very vibrant, will make beautiful shawls. Highly recommend this yarn!
