This is a beautiful 2-ply fancy knit from Anna Sui, a lacey-looking cotton blend yarn dye with an underlayer of striped mesh and an overlayer of a floral cotton lace. The colors are soft black and light khaki (PANTONE 11-4301 is close). Moderate stretch in the width, stable in the length. It's not sheer, but it gives the illusion of being sheer. Medium weight, lovely drape, perfect for tops, cardigans, twin sets, dress or skirt. Please test first if you wish to hand wash at home. Lay flat to dry.
