Who knew that nanotechnology would become trendy in the fashion industry? Discovery News published an article recently about how clothing designers have begun adding gold and silver nanoparticles to Merino wool to create new colors. The size of the nanoparticle determines the color of the fabric.
Not to be a wet blanket, but considering the hype in recent years that people have made about potential dangers of nanoparticles, I’m surprised people aren’t more worried about putting nanoparticles in fabric. But who am I to argue with fashion? I can’t even stand to wear uncomfortable shoes.
