- ALBATROSA fineall-wool light-weight dress fabric in an open fancy weave. Good quality worsted yarns are used. A crepe effect due to spiral twist in the yarns is obtained. The cloth is piece-dyed in cream, tan and other light shades. It is soft enough for infants' wear. Also applied to a plain woven cotton cloth of soft fine yarns, piece-dyed black and other solid colours, used for decorations, such as 84 X 90, 60's/64's, super-combed Egyptian yarns. The cloth has a short nap face. Known also as "Satin Moss", "Vienna", "Snowflake" and "Llama Croise". The Snowflake has flecked yarn and the Vienna is the heaviest variety.
