Woven from a delightful blend of multi tonal yarns to produce a chic, stylish, fresh muted pastel & silver grey toned fabric.

Flanked by a delightful silver grey which has subtle pastel tones which emulate frost, covered with dew droplets catching a spectrum of pastel colours. The combination of these two yarns has produced a fabric which is an excellent alternative to grey or beige; the perfect pastel.
