Charmeuse? What is That?

By February 12, 2013

Follow me on:

How can you be expected to take care of your clothes if you don't understand what's on the label? Unless you are in the clothing business or a true fashionista or a laundry expert, you are probably going to find some terms that don't look familiar.

To help you out - and prevent some laundry disasters - I've put together a Fabric Glossary A to Z. You'll find information on types of fabric, fibers and manufacturing methods like weaving and knitting.

And, once you've given it a read you'll be a winner on Jeopardy or Trivial Pursuit!
