Named for the luxurious upholstery fabric which dates back to the Middle Ages. Damask fabric oozes the same level of luxury that it did centuries ago, when it was the provenance of royalty, nobility, and the uber wealthy. Classic damask fabric weaves together two different types of thread to create a pattern with contrast in color, texture, and sheen. DAMASK is a 100% pure linen yarn, made in Italy. Damask "painted" in smart tone-on-tone shades.
