When I was looking something up on google yesterday, I bumped into an interesting full-text link to a book on fabric -- circa the 1920's. If you sew from vintage patterns, and can't figure out what alpaca is, or zephyr cloth (or anything in between), this will be helpful. It's also just plain fun to read, to learn about the huge range of fabrics that were once available to home sewists.
The book is in two sections --here is part one and here is part 2.

This sounds like a fascinating book! I sew a lot of historic clothing and it could be really helpful. I was able to download part 2, but can't get the link for part 1 to work. Could you check the link or just give the name of the book, and I can search for it myself? Thanks.

That link for part one is working for me now either.
The name of the book is "Fabrics and how to know them.

Let me try that link again.Here's part one.

It seems to work now.
