Lumio! UPDATED

Lumio sounds like a spell Harry Potter and his friends would cast to light up a dark attic, doesn't it?  But it isn't!

This is a very heavy yarn, so it probably will work best to make custom cording or as a background accent on 12 count canvas, but I haven't seen it in person. If you have a knitting shop in your neighborhood, please check it out and let us know if you think it is something a needlepointer could use in special situations.

UPDATE:  I am told that Lumio is a "#6 super bulky yarn designed for coats, winter sweaters and accessories. Saw some great patterns for scarves and hats, but unless I were going to a colder climate would have no use for them. It is a beautiful yarn and the reflective streak in it is perfect for outdoor sportswear."  In other words, this is the largest diameter knitting yarn available, so it almost certainly isn't suitable to needlepoint canvas and might even be too fat for couching.  Many thanks, Jody!
