Bernat Glow in the Dark

Bernat Glow in the Dark yarn70% Acrylic / 30% Polyester
Machine washable & dryable
40g / 1.4oz. & 66m / 72yds

The balls may be small, but they glow brightly! It's mostly acrylic yarn, plyed with a strand of glowing fiber, which I'm guessing is the polyester content. It reminds me of Bernat Satin or Red Heart Soft - silky shiny acrylic yarn.

It comes in pure white and baby pastels. In the pink, yellow, green, blue, and lilac, you can see the white glowing ply twisted around the color plies.

Bernat Glow in the Dark yarnI can imagine this as an accent yarn, like a skull intarsia on a hat or glowing flowers on a sweater. The free patterns on the labels are all headgear - a couple of standard hats, and then fun stuff like an alien headband and one with bunny ears, too! Since all the patterns are for kids, maybe I should feel a little imature for getting excited about this yarn. I bought 4 balls of the white. I'm not sure what to make with it yet, but something for halloween would be fun!


  1. How cool is that!? Thanks for sharing. Who would have thought that could be done. I am amazed at how well, the yarn glows in the dark! So fun!

  2. THAT IS SO CRAZY!! thanks for sharing. now i want some! :D

  3. Me want so muuuuuch! Thank you!

  4. Where do you get this yarn? I cant seem to find it anywhere

  5. It's discontinued. I'm surprised Bernat didn't make more. I'm even more surprised another yarn company hasn't offered a glow line, because the stuff is SUPER COOL!

  6. Man, I would love to have this yarn! Sure like to have a few bundles of it. I would like to know if they come out at Hobby Lobby. Then I would stock it up.
