Fabric in the Spotlight:
Bronze Tie Dye Knit

T-shirt knits are great for warmer weather but they work equally as well in the cooler months for layering with sweaters. The colors are white with a bronze tie dye print. The medallions are in three sizes- 8-1/2″,
6-1/2″ and 4″. Make a cardi-wrap, cowl neck top or loungewear.
