from United States on 02/27/2015 I ordered this in addition to the Touch of Gray, as I wasn't sure which one would work best for me. The Pewter is a shade or two darker than the Touch of Gray. The Touch of Gray was better suited to this particular project, but I'm keeping the Pewter for future use.
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.
