Fabrics for Late Winter 200961″95% Viscose 4%Nylon 1% Elastic27.00Designer–Eileen Fisher
I love rich milk chocolate brown with black-it’s such a elegant look. This is a mid-weight interlock knit-not too light or too heavy. It has more stretch crosswise than lengthwise. Make a beautiful twinset, unstructured jacket or dress.Sewl Mates
