Great drape is a hallmark of tencel, a type of rayon. Also, minimal wrinkling! This one is smooth in texture, but the appearance reminds me of tree bark in light blue and dark blue that is almost navy. The "stripes" run lengthwise. The "wrong" side is also attractive and can be incorporated into your garment design. It's almost as dark blue as the navy on the "right" side. The weight is great for pants, light jackets, and vests, and I could also see making shells or tops from it.
