It's a nice bulky yarn in some rather loud colors. No big deal. Until...BAM!
Shine a light at this stuff and it shows off the reflective thread running through the strand. There is nothing natural about this yarn, but that hasn't dissuaded our knitters!
It would make a great hat or mittens for a cyclist commuting in the dark or the kiddos walking home from school in the dark at 4:30PM. We had someone take a few balls home to make a dog sweater, too. There are a few free patterns for that sort of thing, if your furry friends need sweaters, too.
The ball band (well, most of them, we discovered) have a free pattern for this basic Lumio Hat, which requires just one ball of Lumio. It's also available on the website for free.
