This is an overdye effect fabric with a pale grey base similar to DMC 762 and darker twilight shades of a very muted DMC 3726 (not so bright as that) plus a silver shimmer. This pretty fabric has an opalescent appearance. 100% Cotton.
Charles Craft Gold Standard is woven from 100% cotton yarn, produced especially for Aida. Gold Standard is up to 33% heavier than imported fabric. This means it can be stitched without a hoop. Clear plastic tubes are a convenient square shape for easier display. Plastic tubes keep the fabric free of folds and creases and is great for storing projects and supplies.
