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 is top-quality 40-wt metallic thread, suitable for use in sewing and also as an enhancement to a crocheted or knitted project. I wound it together with a skein of non-metallic yarn. They did not twist together, so I needed to crochet more slowly and be alert for any dropped thread in the stitches. Ripping out stitches is tedious. Untangling the yarn is like untangling a spider web, so it's best to work slowly. When winding a cake of yarn plus this thread, place the thread spool in a horizontal position (I used a small jar to hold it) to let it come off the spool normally. A vertical position will definitely cause twisting and kinking. There were no knots or breaks in the thread.


This thread is perfect as a carry-along strand when you want to add beautiful sparkle to your project. It creates a lovely effect and I love that it comes in such a wide variety of colors as you are certain to find a color to match, contrast, or simply add pop to your project. The generous yardage is fantastic too as normally I would have to buy up to 10 spools of metallic sewing thread, each at the same cost as 1 spool of this thread, to add the sparkle to a project. Thank you for offering such a great product at a great price!


Glitter yarn... Such a contrast in roughness and softness between the two types of yarn that comprise the final product. However, in this version of glitter yarn, the composition blends together well. And it. is. soft! Oh so soft! While I have already decided on what to make with one of the colours I ordered, I am still mulling over the options for the other colour: so. many. options. Spoilt for choice!

I am making a pocket shawl with this yarn using a J (6mm) hook. This yarn is so soft and smooth, it is just sliding right off my hook. I am also using a neck light while crocheting. It is like a lovely starry night with all the twinkling. Can't wait the finish this shawl so I can order more to make another! Thank you Hobbii for such gorgeous yarn.


This yarn is breathtaking! It's great quality, very durable during the multiple times I had to tear apart a few rows and start over. The beautiful color transitions make any project look stunning!


I love all of the colors! It is almost so beautiful you don't want to use it. That's why I ended up buying to packs, one to play with and the other to admire


This yarn is beautiful and easy to work with. Please keep it around for longer than the Christmas season.

Cassie Hayward

Love this yarn. And how it sparkles is just going to make my sister in law stand out at the races


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!
