Bordeaux is not a true red or true magenta, but somewhere in the middle. It's more of a rose, wine or maroon color, reflecting pinks and wine colors. I am not only a retailer of Angelina but a wholesaler as well so will always have the lowest prices. See drop-down bar for choices. For international orders of half pound, convo me for a special listing with international shipping.
Angelina is a very unique fiber, both light reflective and light refractive. A fun and fantastic embellishment fiber, adding depth, dimension, visible "texture" as well as bling. You'll frequently see it mixed in with yarn, felting, art batts and the like. For spinning or making art batts (or roulags), just a few fibers do a lot! Blended with other fibers in amounts as small as 2%, it gives sparkle and highlight to your projects, whether it's yarn, batts or felt. You can just "add a tad" while spinning singles or sprinkle a bit into your carder or blending board to liven up any color mix. To felt, simply lay it on top of your project or between your wool and the wool will tack it down. If layering between the wool, you'll want just a thin over-layer of wool so that you don't hide the wonderful sparkle and brightness of the Angelina. First picture is best. My camera doesn't pick up the subdued accents in this beautiful fiber and makes it look too one dimensional. I know these pictures seem dark but without cutting the light, it kept coming out too fuchsia like in pictures.
I will have many other colors listed (just a few pictured in the last two photos), as well as a few collections, where you can acquire a nice selection of colors in small portions, all in the same listing. These collections are of .1 oz each color, .25 oz of each color, or .5 oz of each color. I also have collections of many colors. These collections contain 5 (your choice), 15, 30, 50, 75, 85 count colors (or more - I'm always getting new colors in).
