. The GLO yarn is a new colour way . A great deal of time has been spent perfecting the yarns and they are available In a variety of colour ways .the glo bit of the yarn is cream and glows green after being near or in light. The 2nd and 3rd pictures show the yarn after being “charged” in light It does not contain PVC, phthalate, CFC’s and HFC’s or any toxic chemicals . It is free from lead and other heavy metals. It passes the Oekotex class 1 standard with 60% to spare . It will feel a little tougher than the rest of the yarn, but softens with use. Your tension may alter when knitting or crocheting the glo bit , but I found running the glo section between my fingers before knitting and adjusting my tension helped. A small section of the yarn is dyed with the Glo and the picture of the socks show how it glows.
The yarn is 100grms 75% super wash merino 25% nylon double knitting weight yarn. this yarn is very soft ,so ideal for scarves ,gloves etc, but hard wearing enough for socks 225 m per 100grm
The yarn is hand hand painted using acid dyes , i take care to provide colourfastness, but some bleeding may occur in the first wash.
each skein is hand painted so no two yarns are identicaI I recommend hand washing with cool water .
