That is the first line of a webpage I found tonight. I think it has its uses as a quick reference for all the different fabrics available. The website is called The Phrontistery. Its author states:
Welcome to the Phrontistery! I'm your host, Forthright. Since 1996, I have compiled word lists in order to spread the joy of the English language. Here, you will find the International House of Logorrhea (an online dictionary of obscure and rare words), the Compendium of Lost Words (a compilation of ultra-rare forgotten words), and many other glossaries, word lists, essays, and other language and etymology resources.
I, of course, found the list of fabrics.
Here are the fabrics that begin with "a":
|aba||garment of camel or goat hair; camel or goat-hair fabric|
|aerophane||thin crinkled semi-transparent fabric|
|alepine||mixed wool and silk or mohair and cotton fabric|
|alpaca||fine wool made from alpaca hair|
|angora||silk-like fabric made from wool of angora goats|
|armure||twilled woollen or silk fabric|
|arrasene||embroidery fabric of wool and silk|
|atlas||rich satin fabric|
Do check this list out.... Enjoy!
