Neon Yarn

I see that Lion Brand has recently released neon colors of their very popular Hometown USA yarn. Have any of you tried neon colored yarns recently? I would love to hear your experiences.

The closest I've come is making a ruffled scarf in the Starbella Yarn color "Go Fly a Kite." Here's a picture:

Personally, I love the colors of this yarn. I find them very fun to look at and I loved watching the colors come together while I was making the yarn.

I found this example on Pinterest:

This beautiful work is by anri knits.
I love the idea of tempering neon with neutral. I believe the neon is hand-dyed yarn, so I don't know if you can find this lighter weight yarn "out in the world." If you do see it, please let me know. I would love to try & I'm definitely keeping my eye out.

As always, if you've tried some of these new colors I would love to hear your experiences. If you're so inclined, I would be happy to share your work on this site. You're welcome to email me at cherishablesnj <at symbol> gmail <dot> com.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Purl Soho/the Purl Bee has some great neon yarns. They're a bit cost prohibiive for me, but they combine them with neutrals too and it really is quite pretty. You sould check them out for some ideas.

  2. Thanks for the tip, Bethany! I'll check them out.
