Neat yarn! It appears to "light up" when a flash or headlights shine on it. Perfect for your school kids who walk to school and can sometimes be out after dark during the winter months. The "Reflective Color Block Cowl" is suitable for both boys and girls and is constructed using the foundation (half double) chain instead of a traditional starting chain. Directions are given above.
