Swiss. A variety of fine muslin, manufactured at Zurich and St. Gall, Switzerland for a long period before being made elsewhere in Europe, or in the United States. It is a thin transparent fabric, woven rather open and but slightly calendered, with simple patterns of dots, stripes or sprigs produced in the loom. It is chiefly employed for summer dresses, quillings, flounces of petticoats, and for infants' wear.
