I have a dress pattern that suggests using laundered cotton. What exactlly is this? I have never seen this as category when fabric shopping. Does it go by another name?

I have a lot of patterns that suggest laundered cotton. I've also wondered for a long time exactly what it is. Your question inspired me to do a quick Google, which returned this link:Haberman Fabrics Message Board

Which says:
" Laundered cotton is simply pre-washed cotton which doesn`t contain sizing. "

Which helps, some, but I still want to know more: As thin as batiste? As heavy as denim? Would quilting cotton work (after all, I could launder it myself, if it comes to that)?

Also wondering about Lanudered Cotton,
CMC

I've been doing a little searching as well. Here is what I have found. According to Emerald Citi Textile, laundered means the fabric has a crinkled finish. While this makes since, I still don't know where to find it or of it actually goes by another name. Would crinkle guaze be a laundered cotton?
