£6.00  From £2.35

Select Color:

Starlight is a lovely, bulky wool mix twined with reflective thread. The reflective thread adds a subtle mixed look to the yarn, and will reflect strong sources of light in the dark (e.g. headlights of a car or flash from the camera). Perfect for those dark Winter months during which it is crucial to be seen in the traffic.

Starlight is easy to work with and works up fast when you knit hats, scarves or gloves with knitting needle size 8 (EU size 5). The wool is super-wash treated so you can easily machine wash it at 104℉ (40°C). Just remember to use wool care detergent and avoid fabric softener.

Please be aware that Starlight yarns are not safety approved for use in traffic. Even if you decided to knit yourself coveralls out of the yarn, it will only be supplementary - Starlight will never be able to replace a reflector or a high visibility reflective vest. So take care of yourself in traffic and ensure visibility with CE-approved reflective materials.

To start with I was disappointed as could not see reflective so just read reviews. Just used my phone camera and flashlight and lit up well. Can't wait to use. Super impressed with the service that I have received cannot get over how quickly my order came and great communication. Hope to use again in future but trying to use my wool stash up. But I expect I shall be tempted.

My eldest son has sensory issues so I was gambling on whether he'd be able to tolerate a hat made from this yarn. I needn't have worried, it made a hat that was soft enough to please him (after one wash) and the reflective quality had him stood in front of the mirror in the dark shining a light at his head to admire it


Wendy

I love this yarn. It knits up really quickly (two beanie hats in two afternoons). The yarn is easy to work with and the reflective flecks make it great for items to wear on dark winter mornings/ evenings. I have ordered more as now the whole family want a 'light up' hat.


Karina

I have crocheted a beanie hat and scarf for my daughter who loves it. Despite the reflective material it is soft and easy to crochet and it 'lights up'.
Tempted to purchase more but have to use up huge stash of yarn first because I am running out of space.

Your wool is brilliant I knit with it all the time also it is very good value the starlight wool is fabulous I’ve did my two granddaughters scarves for school not only will it keep them warm but will let drivers see them regard
