4 ounces of Bright Trilobal Nylon Top - aka Firestar

Combed nylon fiber with a shiny sparkle appearance.

Nylon is truly a man-made fiber and is relatively expensive to produce compared to other man-made fibers. Therefore, its production has decreased, particularly following the discovery of polyester and polypropylene, which are both cheaper to produce. Nylon remains in production due to its easy dye-ability and strength, coupled with a high melt-point. The fiber accepts the same dyes as wool and other animal fibers and is therefore perfect for use in blends where added strength, resilience and wear-ability are required. Nylon is still used extensively in carpet manufacture. The fiber is a little lower than wool in absorbency.

This stuff dyes up beautifully and it is SO soft! Not at all scratchy like some of the firestar I've worked with. A little goes a long way.
