Valentia. A mixed material having a cotton warp, or a cotton-and-silk warp for the silk portion, and a worsted weft of fine British lustre wool. Valentias are produced in large quantities in Spitalfields, London, and the patterns are quite variegated and showy in appearance. They are manufactured exclusively for men's fancy vests, being similar to the fabric termed toilinette, which is composed of silk and cotton and "woolen" yarn, hence is of somewhat softer texture than valentia.
