A light- to- medium-weight, closely woven, plain-weave, cotton fabric made from good-quality yams. The weft is coarser and more closely spaced and has a lower twist factor than the warp giving a soft fabric in which the weft predominates on both sides (cf. casement cloth). A example was 50s x 36s (12 x 16 tex), both Egyptian yams, 68 x 102 (27 ends/cm x 40 picks/cm)
