Conley,

T'was nuth'n dahling - copy and paste can be a beautiful, educational thing Wink

Besides, when I got the idea (months ago, it takes awhile for me to put these things into action), it took a lot of searching to find it on the web.  I'm happy to share.

Wow, that is one cool dog sweater.  I love the info on the yarn also.  I also think it would be a good choice for kids into clubbing. .   yep I am also showing my age!

risks of fiberglass in working with this yarn.) Available in three widths: 1/69" (3050 ypp), 1/32" (1400 ypp) and 1/23" (1000 ypp).

toothy,  which width did you use?  if you orderred it again, would you order a wider or narrower material??

I used the 1/23".  It was perfect with the worsted weight yarn I used. 
I was worried that the skinnier yarn would be less reflective/conspicuous but I don't know if that is a valid worry.  If I were to reorder, it would depend on what was available and what I was planning to do.  If, for some strange or really off-my-usual-path reason I decided to knit in a fine gauge (reflective socks anyone?), I would go for the thinner reflective yarn.

Hmmm, a reflective bikini would be fun for those late night pool parties, but, a thicker yarn would work for that too....... A reflective handbag for streetwalking (now, that doesn't sound right)... I better stop, I'm very tired and my "filter" is a little loose.

The "yarn" is flat, like gymp, but a good deal softer/more flexible than gymp.  There is very little weight to it.


Scooby (in his great modesty) wants to thank all of his admirers. Grin
And I thank you all too!!!
