Calypso Blue Angelina, fused

            

                Angelina Fiber

A host of colors in packages small enough to try a variety!








                                                                                                                                        Fused Angelina in Calypso Blue



Using Angelina in your fiber art can really step up the shimmer.  It's fun, it's an adventure, and the results can be a big WOW.  Here's the problem: it is very difficult to capture the full effect of Angelina on film.  If you haven't seen it in person you can't really appreciate its full visual effect.  If you're new to this fiber take a look at these photos before scrolling down to the chart of available colors.

Here are a few suggestions for incorporating Angelina into your next project:  

-A little Angelina goes a L-O-N-G way!  That's why I sell it in one quarter ounce packages.  Small amounts carded in with your wool before handspinning can add a little zip to your yarn.  Just a little of it peeking out here and there in surface design is very effective; Angelina is prettiest when it's speaking in a whisper, not a shout.

-Some Angelina can be bonded using heat; some cannot.  I've indicated in the chart below which is which.

-Bondable Angelina will bond to itself but not to other fibers.

-Non-bondable Angelina can be trapped between layers of bondable Angelina.

Here Are The Goods

In the chart below I've provided photos that are very close to the actual appearance of the particular color as well as a detailed description of its appearance and its bondable/non-bondable status.  You'll notice that with quite a there are several cases where I disagree with the manufacturer's choice of color designation.  Starting with my favorite color, I've grouped similar colors together so that you can make comparisons easily.  Please consider fiber color and sparkle color when making your choice; I'd be glad to offer help in choosing if asked.  If you'd like to get a closer look at any color, please click on it.   I try to keep a sizeable variety of colors in stock but do occaionally run out of a color.  Most of my sales are made through my online shop at Zibbet.com, where available colors are listed, or at fiber fairs.  If you're planning to buy online please click where it says Shop Here at the top or bottom of this page.
