What is glow yarn?

Glow Yarn is a new revolutionary luminous filament yarn, developed by mixing, melting and extruding Polyester chips with Photo-luminescent pigments.

This is a "New Patented" Glow Yarn, with strong light absorbing-storing- emitting luminescent materials. It automatically glows in the dark after absorbing sunlight for 3 minutes or luminous light for 20 minutes. One hour of sunlight exposure would enable the Glow Yarn to emit light for up to 3 hours continuously. This light absorbing process of absorbing-emit-storing- emitting can be repeated indefinitely.

The Glow Yarn luminescent material is non-toxic, harmless and free from any harmful substances, it offers unlimited applications for embroidery or sewing thread, weaving, garments, shoes, rope, straps & strings, tents, beads, buttons, electric sign boards and even hair spray and nail enamel.

Glow Yarn features a high degree of luminosity, excellent resistance against weather and light and stability against both water and chemicals.
