Often brightly printed, calico has thus given its name to any cat with a patchwork appearance. canvas a heavy, closely woven fabric "He befriended Willem de Kooning, the abstract expressionist painter, and admired his concept of art as a spontaneous creation, a confrontation with the canvas." – Slate (Sep 11, 2019) Canvas is a heavy cotton cloth used for everything from sails, to work clothes, to the floor of boxing rings. Artists often stretch it over a frame and paint on it, so a painting can be referred to as a canvas. cashmere a soft fabric made from goat's wool "Always on the forefront of golf style, Foray Golf is working on a line of sustainable cashmere pieces." – Golf Digest (Aug 20, 2019) Kashmir, the contested mountainous region between India and Pakistan, gave its name to a great Led Zeppelin song, and, more appropriately for this list, to a particular kind of goat native to that region. The hair from the Kashmir goat is incredibly soft — much softer than sheep's wool — and is used to make cashmere, which is fabricated into luxury knitwear of all sorts, even sweatpants! chenille a soft tufted cord used in embroidery “'We use lots of polyester and chenille blends for sofas where large families put them to the test,' she says." – Seattle Times (Jan 12, 2019) Chenille is the French word for caterpillar (the cute, fuzzy kind). They wear little berets and everything! chiffon a sheer fabric of silk or rayon "Tweed, velvet, wool crepe mixed with lace and chiffon to provide the material." – Washington Times (July 2, 2019) Chiffon is a fabric so silky and weightless that it gave its name to a dessert: a chiffon pie uses gelatin and beaten egg whites to achieve a light, fluffy texture. crepe a soft thin light fabric with a crinkled surface "They were made of pink silk crepe, and the designer was Michael Travis." – The Guardian (Aug 6, 2019) Like crepe paper, the material of the same name is thin and crinkly. There is also another clothing-related crepe: the bumpy tan latex used for the soles of casual shoes like Clark's desert boots. dungaree a coarse durable twill-weave cotton fabric "But, as was his wont, it is not all sensible: dungarees may be comfortable, but they’re not ideal for a train bathroom." – The Guardian (Aug 14, 2019) Originally a Hindi term for denim, a heavy cotton fabric often dyed blue with indigo, dungaree quickly became synonymous with jeans and overalls, the clothing most often made from that fabric. fleece a soft bulky fabric with deep pile "Insulation: Bring extra clothes, maybe a fleece, down or rain jacket." – Los Angeles Times (Aug 2, 2019) When wool is still attached to the sheep that grew it, it's called fleece. To fleece someone means to cheat them, as in shearing off all their wool and leaving them naked in a field. Synthetic fleece, made from polyester, is a hugely popular material for fuzzy vests and outdoorsy jackets, but it does shed plastic particles into the environment. gauze a net of transparent fabric with a loose open weave "A closer inspection revealed the man was using Band-Aids and gauze to patch the flats, officials said." – Fox News (Aug 21, 2019) jersey a slightly elastic machine-knit fabric "He ditched the loose practice jerseys lest players get lulled into bad habits and holding calls." – Seattle Times (Sep 11, 2019) Named for the British island, jersey is the material T-shirts are made from. Some shirts, especially athletic team uniforms, are given the name jersey. Jersey cows are also named for the island, but T-shirts are not made from the cows. Cows don't wear jerseys either, unless they're Chicago Bulls. linen a fabric woven with fibers from the flax plant "For your first day as an intern at Spy magazine, you wore a linen suit with spectator shoes." – New York Times (Sep 1, 2019) Lightweight and airy, linen is a great choice for summer clothes. Like canvas, painters sometimes stretch it and paint on it. It's more expensive, but because of its finer surface artists who can afford linen tend to prefer it. muslin plain-woven cotton fabric "Place a handful of porridge oats in a muslin square, add a few dried lavender flowers or rose petals and tie into a bag." – The Guardian (July 14, 2019) pique tightly woven fabric with raised cords "For a similar look, try the Kando pants, merino knits or pique polos on uniqlo.com." – Golf Digest (May 13, 2019) Piqué (often spelled with the accent) is a tight cotton fabric often used to make polo shirts. Pique can also mean "stimulate" or "inspire" as in something interesting piques your curiosity. "A fit of pique" is a temper tantrum. It is therefore possible to have a pique polo shirt pique your interest and then you yell at the mannequin in a fit of pique when you see the price tag. satin a smooth, shiny fabric "The other 11 wear spaghetti-strap slips and the odd understated piece of jewellery; Collins wears a ruched satin gown with sparkling embroidery and enormous diamond earrings." – The Guardian (Sep 3, 2019) silk a fabric made from the fine threads produced by larvae "Also the painterly silk tee dresses with portraits by Mr. Phillips, the swishing long shirts over skinny trousers, the pleated soul goddess gowns in gold and periwinkle, with trainlike sleeves." – New York Times (Sep 9, 2019) Silk, an elegant and expensive material famous for its strength and shine, is made by unrolling the cocoons of a caterpillar — bombyx mori — better known as a silkworm. velvet a silky densely piled fabric with a plain back "He strutted in through the back entrance—he was holding a cane, which enhanced his royal aspect—and invited me across the velvet rope into the V.I.P. area." brocade thick expensive material with a raised pattern "The actor said he’s seen other Lincoln impersonators who wear colorful brocade vests underneath their black frock coats." – Washington Post (July 15, 2019) calico coarse cloth with a bright print "The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office says members of the San Jose Fire Department lifted the heavy metal grating on the drain and a deputy jumped down to rescue the orange and white calico." – Washington Times (May 21, 2019) Calico refers to a simple, inexpensive woven cotton that's heavier than muslin but lighter than canvas.

Velour is a cheaper cotton or synthetic version of velvet — think track suit as opposed to dinner jacket. As with canvas and linen, some artists paint on black velvet, but their subjects tend to be portraits of Elvis or dogs playing poker.
