fibres are 15 denier heat-bondable synthetic
fibres. The colours are shimmering and highly reflective
- adding a new dimension to embroidery, card making,
papermaking or felt making. They are soft to handle and
can be combined with other fibres to create shimmering
hand-spun yarns. It is very difficult to photograph
their true reflective qualities.
fibres have a low melting point and can be
fused together to make a flat sheet to cut or work into.
They are placed between baking parchment and ironed
briefly to create a luminescent web of non-woven fabric.
This photograph shows a 'paper' cone that has been
created by sprinkling a small number of dried
flower petals between two thin layers of
Angelina fibre before heating them.
By placing the Angelina
fibres between two sheets of paper and then
over a textured surface before ironing, it is possible
to create a textured surface to the Angelina fibre 'paper'.
This can add further interest for card makers, scrap bookers
The card below, made by Pam Bealing, has been made
from fused 'Raspberry Sparkle' Angelina fibres, cut
into a heart shape and then stitched into. The heart
is mounted on Cotton
Chainstitch paper and the card
blank is handmade Lokta paper.
These novelty yarns were hand spun by Susan Litton using White
Cotton Sliver and 'Cobalt Sparkle' Angelina
fibres (top) and Tencel
and 'Peacock' Angelina fibres (bottom)
