Checkmate Add to My Favorites
"Checkmate" from Trendsetter Yarns is a wonderful ribbon yarn full of contrasts. It alternates a wide, shimmering checkerboard (1/2" wide) with a narrower, matte-finish, suede-like ribbon (1/4") for elegant fun! Made in France of 100% nylon, it works up beautifully as out-of-the-ordinary fringe, and is terrific for cardigans, vests, shrugs, handbags, boleros and novelty clothing.
