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


I was a little concerned because I usually crochet with DK yarns and size 5 and larger hooks and was not sure about the yarn and a size 3.5 as recommended. However, I am using a size 4 hook ( UK) and the scarf is crocheting up beautifully- the colour really comes to life and it will be a gorgeous present for my daughter. Can't wait to try out the other colours in the range.


Easy to use and it's adding a little special to different projects. I've used the gold one for making the edges of sleepers with evel eye and as well for a unicorn horn. Planing to use it again for Christmas ornaments and different projects!

Sue Parker

This is a really beautiful yarn. Before I received it, I was a little concerned that the metallic strip would be really rough and itchy but it's absolutely fine and the yarn works up lovely and soft. I'll definitely be ordering again
