- American Twill
- AMERICAN TWILL, wrongly called "Shalloon".The name given to the ordinary twill weave 2/2 by the American traders. "Shalloon" applied to this twill is not correct, since a shalloon is a very good quality woollen cloth (see Shalloon), whereas American twills are cotton fabrics. The American cloth varies in weight, such as 38-in., 64 X 60, 36/24, 2 X 2 twill. 36-in., 68 X 66, 40/32, 2 X 2 twill.
