A 2 yard 16 inch long by 61 inch wide piece of knit fabric. Manufacturer not stated. Fiber not stated and date unknown but, based upon experience, this piece is late 1960s to early 1970s.
No fiber content stated but feels like polyester and is a medium-weight knit. The fabric is a rectangle…any distortion to that shape is either the angle of my clothesline or the fabric is just blowing in the wind. Any discolorations are the fact I take a bad photo or the sun is glinting off of a fold.

I did not see any flaws, pulls or snags. However, the printing is off just a tad…the white edge at one selvedge is fairly even but the white edge at the other selvedge changes in width. I believe if you cut according to the design you should be fine, the change is about ¼ inch.
Taking a 10 inch section on the cross grain and pulling hard, the fabric will stretch to 11 inches. It is about the same amount of stretch on the bias.

What looks like a dark streak is a fold in the fabric causing a shadow. Picture 4: Close up of fabric's print with dime and quarter for scale.
The fabric was washed and dried in the Carolina sun. I have no pets and never fertilize the grass; if the fabric laid on the ground for the photo…it stayed clean. When purchasing a vintage fabric please remember that it is old. I may have missed a fade or a flaw. I may have misjudged the year. I am happy to be corrected. All fabrics are vintage items and sold…AS IS. Although I maintain a smoke-free and a pet-free studio, I have no control over where items have been previously. I attempt to represent my goods as honestly as possible, but sometimes something will get by. If you have any doubts about an item, E-MAIL ME!
