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 threads, yarns, art quilts, or surface design and embellishment project.

In naturally occurring mother of pearl, opals and peacock feather, 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.

NOTE: 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.

The slivers of holographic fibers give off ultra high-tech color refractive rainbow, while the metalized fiber gives soft metallic highlights.

The Electric has soft reflection and solid neon colors. Imagine diamond-like dew drops on a spider's web and the iridescence of butterfly wings!

Angelina Fibers Types:

  • Heat bondable AKA Hot Fix: These fibers can be ironed at a low temperature to fuse them together. You can mix with Staple colors in any combination and use the Heatbondable fibers as the "glue" The end result will be determined by the temperature, pressure from the iron and time used to heat the fibers. Generally, these fibers will not fuse to any other fiber, paper or other medium except itself.

  • Staple (NOT Heatbondable): The Staples do not adhere to themselves or the heat bondables. Heated on a higher temperature may get it to fuse but you may lose color and/or sheen according to the manufacturer. Mixed with the heat bondables. You can use them anywhere. They can add a third dimension if you wish to let some fibers protrude from the surface of your artwork.

Angelina Fibers Classifications:

  • Iridescent, Florescent, Sparkles: Highly reflective fibers that shimmer with other brilliant tones. Most are Heat Bondable.
  • Holographic: A spectrum of the rainbow colors on sleek fibers
  • Metalized: These are made of true metals and have a softer finish. These are Staples and NOT Heatbondable but can be mixed with other bondable fibers.
  • Electric: Five bright neon fibers that will stand out in any fabric display or fashion. These are all Staples and NOT Heatbondable
  • Flash: These are shimmery fibers of one color, Rose Gold Flash, Purple Flash etc. some are Staple and some are Heatbondable
  • Crystals: The Crystals all have shimmery white fibers with a different "glow" or highlight. The four Crystals come in BOTH Staple AND Heatbondable for each of the four Crystal colors.

The instructions for heat bonding are as follows:

The temperature required is dependent on several variables including dwell time and applied pressure. Increasing dwell time and heat results in predictable color shifts in the fiber.

NOTE: Generally, Angelina Heat Bondable AKA Hot Fix fiber will only adhere to itself AND the staple (no bond) Angelina's and NOT to other fibers, tissue paper or fabrics.

  1. Heat iron to silk temperature setting.
    • NOTE: Approximate bonding temperature is 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • Since temperature gauges on irons vary widely even within most brand models, it is best to test a small amount to determine the correct bonding temperature.
  2. Place a small amount of fiber between two sheets of tissue paper or parchment paper.
    • Gently, with light pressure, move the iron back and forth
    • Check frequently on the bonding progress.
    • NOTE: Be careful not to "fry" the Angelina fiber with too much heat or do repeated pressing as the fibers lose their sheen and become a dull brownish version of the color.
