I have pulled another older fabric (at least 8 years old) from my stash for my current project. It is an interesting rayon with a slight stretch running vertical to the selvage. I decided to take advantage of the stretch and cut my project perpendicular to the selvage. In-other-words the grain will run side to side instead of up and down. The texture is also unique. It is like a very fine corduroy in the way it feels and has a sheen like velvet. The color is a denim blue. Here is a sample of the fabric with a sneak peek of the project.
