Hi Angie and fabulous fabbers,
Over the last few years I have been doing more and more shopping online and I am surprised to find I am in a confusion concerning fabric descriptions, especially when I shop at Boden! Several times I have ordered something only to find it was a different kind of fabric than I expected. Sometimes the fabric is described as knit or knitted. I have expected a sweater type fabric for both of those, but that is not always the case. There is also jersey (T-shirt fabric?) ponte, ottoman, broderie, crêpe, poplin, chino, and Pima! Not to mention all the regular names of fabrics that I am familiar with. Angie, could you enlighten us on this subject? Has anyone else been surprised by what arrived in the mail?
