Muslin

 

Draping muslin is treated to hang well for curtains.

Cambric

100% unbleached cotton
Cambric is not waxed but glazed by friction calendering, i.e. it is passed through heated rollers to give it a glossy finish. This helps to reduce feather migration.

Cambric
Tickings & drill

100%  non F/R cotton
Tickings and drills are more effective than cambric at containing feathers because of their tighter twill weave.
