Aluminum Attraction (Nov, 1943)

Aluminum Attraction

THE well-filled sweater shown in the picture at right, designed for use with evening dress, is made of a new material— aluminum yarn, colored to resemble gold. Production of this yarn is limited to the small amount necessary for experimental purposes, is expected to remain so until after the war, when it will become available for general civilian use. And if it can make every girl look like this one, we’re certainly in favor of it. Her name is Lorna Deane.

    Ah! The freedom days before security gates at airports and other public places.

    Stan… Odd that you should mention tinfoil hats….…

    How is it that on one side of the Atlantic it’s “aluminum” and on t’other it’s “aluminium”?
