Fabric and Cloth


Fabric and Cloth
This is a rather odd category, listing 269 names of kinds of fabric and cloth. There is an enormous variety in fabrics, with many different national, historical and regional varieties. It is interesting to note, however, that almost all of the types of fabric listed below are variants or blends of just five basic fabric types (silk, cotton, linen, wool and worsted). Many of the terms are foreign in origin; English orthography has been adopted where it exists. PLEASE NOTE: I am not a fabric dealer. I do not know where to find weird fabrics, nor am I qualified to comment on the qualities or uses of any type of fabric, except from the definitions listed in the dictionaries from which this list was compiled. If you ask me to recommend a fabric for your wedding dress, well, I've always thought that burlap gets a bum rap ....
