Everyone's inner child is intrigued by all things glow-in-the-dark, so I just know this light up yarn secretly excites you!
EL yarn is electroluminescent and powered by a battery, unlike glowing apparel from the past which was limited to glow-in-the-dark iron-ons or glow stick accessories.
"A multi-layer electroluminescent film composite material made from yarn and dipped in a special light-emitting ink on the inide, with an insulated covering and a second layer of yarn on the outside," is how Gizmodo explained it. "When electricity runs through the yarn and ink, an electric field is created that illuminates any point where the outer and inner layers touch."
This is a great way to attract a concentration of attention to your favourite assets, literally illuminating particular body parts, while leaving those you're not so proud of in the dark.
