    It was not see through.
    Thank you for the very interesting link. It could be a rayon sort of fabric. I have not thought of that

    I guess not. For my feeling lurex is stiffer. This is real soft and shifty

    No I don't think so. It's not as thick and heavy

    I don't know about the fabric but the embroidery design is similar to those used on beautiful pillowcases and dresser scarves decades ago. Her work is lovely. It's a treasure for sure.

    started a topic I found this ......

    I found this ......

    Fabric question

    in my stash I found this little picture sewn by my mother right after WW 2. I know she had some US connections. MY question now is this fabric known in the US or does someone know it's name. Just wondering.


    it is a shifty sort of fabric shining depending on the light.

    thanks in advance for any information
