Angelina®

Angelina Fiber

Angelina Fiber is a new, very fine (sized as small as 10 denier), unique fiber. Light reflective, as well as light refractive, Angelina is incredibly luminescent, while (unlike regular metallics) it has an extremely soft hand. Blended with other fibers in amounts as small as 2%, it gives sparkle and highlight to your yarn.

Angelina comes in four classifications - Iridescent, Holographic, Metalized and Electric. In naturally occuring mother of pearl, opals and peacock feathers, reflected rays interact to reinforce some wavelengths and dampen others. This breaks up the white light, so various colors reflect to the viewer. This same concept is used in the manufacture of the Iridescent Angelina fiber. The Holographic Angelina has ultra high-tech color refractive sparks, while the metalized fiber gives soft metallic highlights. The Electric Angelina has soft reflection and solid electric colors.

Imagine diamond-like dew drops on a spider's web and the iridescence of butterfly wings!

Note that the base color is the color of the fiber when there is no direct light reflection. Every portion of the fiber has the potential to reflect to the viewer sparkles of color. This is what gives the fiber its lively "color in motion" quality. The effect can be like watching light dance off the surface of water.

Forty-one Colors Available:

We've attempted to photograph the Angelina, but the nature of this highly reflective fiber is such that, even if we could capture a good image, there is no way that a computer monitor could display the brilliant sparkles of light; even truly accurate color rendition hasn't been possible for us. These images only give the faintest impression of what Angelina actually looks like, and are meant for reference only. This is truly a "must see to appreciate" situation!

Original 26 colors. The easiest way to describe this is to note that it contains all colors except what are in the 15-color kit. Currently, this kit contains the non-heat-bondable form of the four Crystal colors.1/4 ounce per color.
