It really glows!
Remember the glowing stuff I wrote about? I used some of the thread for the yarn you see here. It's called "Marine Phosphorescence" and - as you can see - it does glow in the dark.
I was lucky to witness real marine phosphorescence once or twice (years ago) and it was absolutely stunning and soooo beautiful! It started on our last evening in England, where we had spent our summer holidays, and continued when we were going back to Germany. So I was able to see it both at the beach and from the ship. It was slightly eerie and unbelievably wonderful...
This yarn will be listed in our Etsy shop soon.
(Edit: I've added another picture to show the yarn in daylight - thanks to GrannyWeatherwax for reminding me! More pictures can be seen on my flickr-Page.)
