Glow-in-the-dark embroidery thread

Coats Lucence is an embroidery thread with a special ‘glow in the dark’ effect which is ideal for making children’s clothing more exciting, or for adding that extra special decorative feature. It charges in sunlight and artificial light (to a lesser degree) which enables it to glow in the dark. Lucence has been produced to comply with the most stringent regulations on babywear and children's clothing.

Lucence works exceptionally well as embroidery or decorative topstitching. It offers a high level of abrasion resistance during washing and wear.
