Definition of Flat Crepe


US English version

Also called French CrÍpe or Lingerie CrÍpe but not exactly the same. It is the flattest of all the CrÍpes with only a very slight pebbled or CrÍpe effect hard twist alternating 25 x 22 in filling; warp has ordinary twist. It is very soft and pliable, which makes it good for draping. It is very light weight - 2 times as many ends as picks. It may be white, coloured, or printed. Most of it launders well.

Uses: Accessories, blouses, dress goods, negligees, pyjamas and other pieces of lingerie and linings.
