From a brand new shipment just in from Italian mills, this is a stunning wool blend (more synthetic than wool) boucle' knit that has a plain knit backing through which variously-textured yarns are woven to create a lofty, nubby boucle' look. The colors are just wonderful... a variegated mix of ivory, various shades of gray and taupe... (PANTONE 11-0105, 16-1210, 18-0503, etc). It has a high-fashion, upscale casual look. STUNNING! The right side has quite a lot of texture, and the wrong side is more like a plain, flat knit stitch. Stable in both directions, even though it's a knit. Make a cozy cardigan, sweater jacket, poncho, etc. Dry clean, or treat as you would any fine sweater knit.
