Item Details and Description
Description: The fabric design is same on both sides, grid of large rectangles (about 5 inches 12.7 cm long) composed with various pixels and small cross-shapes and smaller diamonds and square cross shapes within; Fabric probably intended for use in making a garment for wear in cooler weather; While this is 50% wool with the tsumugi silk (50%) it still feels fairly smooth to the touch.
Colors: Basic background color is a beige, close to the color of unprocessed raw silk; other colors are black, cranberry and yellow, which are subtly interwoven into the fabric (see close-ups).
