This knit reminds me of a Monet painting!  The fiber is nylon but feels like cotton and the spandex gives it good crosswise stretch but no lengthwise stretch.  It has a narrow (1/8″)  ribbon like stripe spaced 1″ apart.  On top of the stripes are clear sequins that give a very subtle sparkle.  Each sequin is spaced 1-1/4″ apart.  The color way has shades of magenta, lavender and lemon yellow on a charcoal grey background.  Make a fabulous t-shirt or dress for the holidays.
