Stiff, but like the end results

It's really a 3.5-star review.
The skeins are very small, and I only bought them because they were on sale (or else they would be expensive for what you receive). The material is stiff, and it does glow in the dark (the picture shows a bit more glow, but in person, it's not as bright). I don't think I would buy them again, just due to the price.

Love this yarn!!

I love how easy this chenille is to work with. I used Glow Worm and the glow is SO bright!

Fun but small

I loved using this yarn! It had a but of a different texture and was slightly tricky to see stitches when crocheting with it but the results were so worth it! I just wish bigger balls were available as well because one project took most of the ball. I want so much more but, though I am understanding that it’s probably difficult to make, the price per what you get is hard for me

Not what I was expecting

I made 2 octopuses with 3 balls it was hard for me to work with. They don't glow all that great even after charging them.

Not as expected

It does glow in the dark. It is not bright compared to the stars you glue on the ceiling. The colour is duller than the Lionbrand photo.

It is not a 6-super bulky. It is 12 wpi, more a 4 worsted. The chenille is flat not fully round, and coarser than a blanket yarn. It knits up well, but drags. Cast on/off loosely as it is not stretchy due to the coarseness of the yarn. On a 8 mm needle it has holes in it. On a 5 mm needle it is solid but drags while knitting, a smaller needle would be difficult. There is not a lot on a ball, so I would only use it as a stripe or trim in a hat. Too coarse for mitts or anything against the skin.

I live in Canada near the Rocky Mountains and it gets to -35 deg C. I bought this to make toques, as my husband walks our dog at night and the grandchildren walk to and from school in the dark or dusk in winter. I tried it as a bulky but this did not work. I will try it again in a worsted weight pattern.

Absolutely TERRIBLE. I couldn’t crochet with it at all, it kept sticking to itself and breaking constantly.
