The launch of this thread is very recent and the difference between it and the others is the light effect that happens only in the dark.

This thread can create a greenish fluorescent! This happens because it has a fiber composed of materials that enables this effect!

Due to a phosphorescent raw material, this thread (100% polyester) glows in the dark, for a limited time.

How the thread glows

The glow lasts for about 15 minutes, and for this to happen you will need to “charge” the item first.

It’s the time the item is being charged that defines if the glow will last longer or not. The way this charging takes place is through the item’s exposure to natural or artificial light.

In that way, the whole item must be in contact with light, for at least 1 hour, to be able to glow in the dark.
