Coburg. A thin dress fabric woven of worsted and cotton, twilled on one side, and used as a substitute for merino and paramatta cloth. It was first introduced in England in 1838, shortly after Victoria's marriage with Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg; most probably aiming at popularity through that event. In England the term coburg is applied to all cotton-warp, twilled worsted dress fabrics either of double or single width. Cobweb lawn. Fine white linen or cotton lawn. [See Lawn]
