From the sample room of a NY designer, this is a smart and stylish yarn-dyed, textured (black areas are slightly raised) knit with a pretty graphic design in black and white. It reads more as black and gray because there are mini-stripes that make up the lighter areas, a mix of black and white. Light weight yet opaque, it's just perfect for drapey cardigan and pullover styles, or for a tunic, sweater dress or skirt. It has ample stretch and perfect recovery in the width, less in the length. Treat as you would any fine sweater knit.
