Metallic Yarn


Metallic yarn is, unlike the name suggests, not actually yarn but slit Aluminium metallized Polyester film that is lacquered with protective epoxy resin to give the film a shiny looking metallized surface.

The slit foil / unsupported component can then be supported or twisted with other yarns to offer a wide range of effects.


Metallic yarns are not to be confused with real metal coated yarns like SwicoGold or SwicoSilver, that are either coated with real 24K Gold or pure silver.
