This unusual fabric combines a metal thread and a linen one. I like it! It is sparkly but subtle, malleable yet soft, and altogether interesting. It worked into my classic silhouette easily. When I found the fabric, I considered it for the Opus Dei dress but it wasn't nearly as harsh as I feared. I'd use it as a trim on a jacket or sweater. Metallic linen, ribbon and a sparkly "buckle."
