Made from shiny polyester, Metallic Lurex has a larger structure than average lurex . This larger weave creates a chainmail effect, great for costumes and cosplay. Both the silver and gold use black as an extra element in the weave and this produces a gorgeous two tone effect in the fabric which changes with the light and movement. The silver has more of a pewter look due to the two tone black and the gold is a deep rich tone.
The fabric itself is a sheer, semi translucent lurex. For example, when you hold in front of an item you would be able to partly see through to it. This is fine if you want to use the fabric for display or flat against a wall, but not if you want to hide anything. For dressmaking and costumes there are so many uses for this sparkle fabric.
