Stainless steel yarn
I discovered some absolutely gorgeous yarn, mixed with stainless steel by Habu. The SS is almost invisible but it gives body to the yarn, whether you use it for knitting (I am currently making a jacket with this with two different colours - black and a brown) or even lace (I have a white cone for lace). When the knitted garment is complete, you just "scrunch" the garmet into shape.
The yarn is available in wool and stainless steel or silk and stainless steel.
It inspired me to attempt to spin my own - I found a supplier of the steel I just now need the time to experiment.
