Words escape me--I adore this yarn. Fluid, sexy and ultra feminine, Flash is a knitted tube of rayon with flecks of gold metallic peeking through the mesh. A binder of nylon helps to retain shape. Excellent yardage makes Flash a great choice for those special occasion shells. The rayon takes the color beautifully. The knitted fabric is drapable and slinky with a hint of "crunch" to the hand. Works great in pattern stitches.
