Natural Glitz BLEND
Our own bend of Shetland and Rainbow Nylon!
NATURAL GLITZ is a fusion of natural white undyed Shetland wool blended with a shimmering rainbow Trilobal Nylon (Firestar)
Shetland has a fairly short staple and when spun woollen or semi woollen will give a soft and airy yarn. The Firestar, of course, adds a touch of sparkle and a little bit of bling as well as a subtle colouring which makes the white Shetland take on an slight oatmeal hue (see images). Acid dyes will take on the nylon turning rainbow into various tones of the colour used. Felters also love this fibre for when a bit of shimmer is required such as fairy wings.
