This heavier-weight fabric has a slightly spongy feel; just a little bit of loft to make you feel comfortable. Definitely one for texture-lovers, it has a slightly nubbly finish and a waffle-like look without being too obvious. It's got a great squish and a full-bodied drape that would be lovely in pants, dresses, and heavier-weight shirts or lightweight coats. The finish on this is ever so slightly washed without being a full antiqued finish. It's a fantastic year-round fabric; great for wide legged summer pants and heavier winter tunics alike.
