Using Angelina Fiber

A great way to add sparkle to your embroidery is by using Angelina fiber, a very fine, unique fiber that is incredibly luminescent. It can be layered in between fabric and organza to make great appliqué fabric, and can also be used in freestanding lace.

A couple of our latest designs and projects that are suitable for using Angelina fibers with are the pretty Fantasy Flowers and the lovely Floral Frames shown here.

Adding just a little to another fiber mix will result in a shimmering, sparkling effect. There are endless possibilities!

    Thank you for the link to the tutorial. I think that the angelina fibers would look very much like the frosting on cupcakes or cotton candy. If one has an embroidery design featuring something ‘fluffy’, angelina could be substituted for one of the color changes in that design.
