Fayetta (Fa-Yet'-A). A variety of lightweight, double-fold dress silk, twill woven, with a twisted silk warp and a weft of fine wool. The side of the fabric is "finished" on which the silk predominates, thus resembling pure silk goods. The weft is composed of superior wool, and counts 146 picks to the inch. The fabric measures 42 inches in width, and in many respects is similar to gloria silk, possessing the same graceful draping qualities. [See Gloria]
