I think these are adorable, but my husband just walked up behind me while I was looking at the pattern and told me, "no, you're not", he's a retired fire/rescue captain and said there is no yarn or wool that could be used to make them safe.

First of all these are gorgeous. Secondly they will not start a fire if you use your common sense. You don't lay yarn on the bulb and you use low wattage bulbs. Try no more than a 40watt. That's a given. And never leave it on when you go out. That's just basic brain power!


DANGER. Hot light bulbs can cause fires. ??????????
