    1.         Light-weight fine cotton fabric with corded stripes
    or bars. White, printed or dyed. Good quality
    wears well. Poor grade tends to split on stripe due
    to uneven strength of warp and filling yarns.
    Uses: lingerie, infant's wear, pajamas, dresses.
    Weave—plain.    Width, 30", 32".
    2,         Bedspreads called dimity are like seersucker with
    puckered stripes. Light-weight, wash well, used in
    hospitals and other institutions. Also called
    crinkle spreads.
