Muslin can also be called calico
Dec 28 2010, 9:30 PM ESTMuslin is called calico in England. Muslin is considered here to be the airy loose weave cotton which once was wrapped around hams or large flitches of bacon.
I understand that in North America calico is what would be called muslin in England.
I wonder when the names became reversed? 1 out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?
