The thread that glows at night!
In day time, Glow-in-the-dark embroidery floss is milky white and could almost be confused with regular white cotton floss.
What makes it special?
At night, your cross stitches softly glow...
DMC Glow-in-the-Dark Embroidery floss
How does it work?
When exposed to light, the thread captures the energy of the light beams. In total dark, the thread continues to gently glow.
For maximum effect, place the thread under a strong light for a few minutes, then watch in total darkness.
Glow-in-the-dark Embroidery floss:
Part of the DMC Light effects range, the floss is similar to DMC cotton floss and composed of 6 strands.
A fun thread that designers love to use:
Designers love to make their work a little different and special. They came up with plenty of ideas of words and text that glow at night, such as this adorable series of Purple Fairies chanting "Abracadabra"! (Agnès Delage Calvet design).
"We're a spooky family" is another of the designer's fun cross stitch patterns. It does make the piece a little spookier to have a strange glow at night...
We're a spooky family, stitched with Glow-in-the-dark floss
Designer Barbara Ana, who loves to have fun with threads, used Glow-in-the -Dark threads for Olivia, the Fairy-Witch! The dainty little wings stand out, white in daytime, luminous at night...
Now watch a mysterious fairy turn into a witch!
Designer Féeféedille came accross another interesting idea. Since the thread is white, she could "hide" a pattern within a pattern. Out comes the witch at night. Can you see her hiding behind this gentle fairy?
