Dazzle the world with every step that you take with our lustrous and ultra-soft Diamond Sock Blend. Inspired by diamond dust, a glittering glass material that can be applied to ink and paper in the silkscreen printing process to create a textured and luminous finish, this blend of Nylon and Glitter Merino's essence is essentially the same. Many artists such as Andy Warhol and Russell Young use the famed diamond dust cover in their works to give them an added sense of significance and depth respectively. As anyone who has seen a diamond-dusted work in person can say, they capture the light in a way that beautifully plays to the colors on the work while bringing about a shining aura. Similarly to diamond dust, our Diamond blend can greatly enhance any fiber project by adding value and beauty whether plying, blending, felting, dyeing, or weaving. As the great Warhol once said, "Art is what you can get away with!" Dive into this exclusive blend and let your imagination take control.
Why we love it:
This fiber shines like the stars! There are two colors of Angelina Glitz fiber that dance throughout this blend. One has an ultraviolet reflection and the other is opal with many soft, opalescent, hues that create a unique glow. This is one of our go-to blends for sock knitting due to the wonderful properties of Merino wool and the added stretch thanks to the nylon. The magic doesn't end there, this blend is gorgeous when dyed, blended with other fibers, and even plied with another contrasting fiber. The creative possibilities are endless. Your end project will certainly have a mesmerizing glow to it.
