Description
This fiber is sold in 1oz quantities, with discounts available (automatically) based on how much you buy at once.

How fun is this?! This fiber really glows in the dark! This is a loose fiber made out of recycled polyester that glows green in the dark but is white in the light. It is 1.5 denier, or approximately 4 microns (softer than our previous listings). This fiber is very short at about 1.5 inches long, which means it should either be blended or spun by an advanced spinner for best results. It can be spun by itself, but does take time and patience. It works very well blended into batts with other fibers.

You can use this fiber on its own or mix it with other fibers for a funky, unique yarn! You can even use this in felting projects if you lock it in with wool. Going to a party? Sport something that glows! Do you like to go for walks in the evening? Make a vest out of this fiber to make sure you're visible to cars. You can even use this in core-spinning rug yarn to make a visible pathway in the dark!! This fiber is non-radioactive, toxic-free, non-flammable and harmless, containing no phosphorus or lead, or any other hazardous element or chemical, and can be recharged an infinite number of times.

Photoluminescence is a special kind of luminescence, which can absorb light energy then release the energy in light. Phosphorescent materials absorb and store light, then emit visible light slowly over time. There are many glow-in-the-dark products containing phosphorescent materials in the market nowadays, from mobile phone covers to toys. If you have ever seen any of these products, you know that they all have to be "charged", just like a battery. You hold them up to a visible or UV light for a few minutes, and then take them to a dark place where they glow for several hours. Sunlight, lamp light, and pretty much all visible light will work to charge this fiber. It is safe to use under water and will not lose its glow when wet. It works like so: Photons boost the electrons to jump into a higher level of energy orbit. The energy is then released in the form of light as the electron returns to its ground level. Science is cool!
