Cro-Shayley makes Reflective Blissful Ear Warmers

kids4I recently went on a weekend mountain trip to Blowing Rock, North Carolina with my family. Since I knew it was going to be cold (a freezing 8 degrees, that is), I crocheted a few Blissful Ear Warmers with Red Heart’s new very awesome, incredibly amazing REFLECTIVE YARN.

BlissfulEarWarmersModelI honestly, can’t get enough of this stuff!!! I’m such a big kid, so when seeing what this new yarn does when you take a flash photo, I just knew my nieces and nephew (and husband, mom, dad, aunt, cousins, brother, and sister-in-law) would LOVE it too! You should have seen their faces when I showed them my phone after taking the picture.E820_8704


Reflective yarn is a size 5, bulky yarn with added reflective thread wrap, making the yarn reflect light and aiding in nighttime visibility… and obviously showing up well in flash photography!

Watch this video talking about the New Reflective Yarn!

P.S. Earwarmers, hats, wristers, dog leashes/collars and other accessories would be great gifts for those early-morning/late-night runners and dog-walkers. Safety first! ;)

Here are a few more pictures from our trip.

    I want to know if you can make the reflective strip that we can add ourself to different yarns, I use Redheart Super Saver and make hats with leftover yarn, this is just awesome and I would like to add it to all hats. Great safety idea.

      Hi Lucy, Thanks for your question. Unfortunately it is not possible to get just the reflective strip.

    Does the yarn glow by any way but taking a flash picture? I was thinking solar for night time wear. Thanks, Judy

      Hi Judy, Thank you for your question! Reflective gets its name from a reflective fiber that is twisted into the yarn. The fiber reflects light, as you can see in the pictures on this blog. If you shine a flashlight or car headlights or similar sources of light at the yarn, it will show the same reflective properties. But it does not store up light and glow on its own as solar-powered items do.
