For that all-American classic look go dressy with Tahki's fantastic "Nova" yarn. Like a sparkling nova star in the sky, "Nova" yarn twinkles with a hint of shimmer because of the metallic thread loosely wrapped around the cotton/acrylic base strand. What we love so well is that the metallic is dyed in a complementary shade to color coordinate with the solid base. And it's machine washable too! Beautifully crafted in Italy of 60% cotton, 37% acrylic, 2% nylon & 1% polyester.
