Oxford cloth is a fabric that was first milled in the late 19th century in Scotland, named for Oxford University. It is usually cotton, or a cotton blend, and it can be of manufactured fiber. Soft and porous, it makes a good shirt and is often white. If the warp is dyed and the weft left white, it is called oxford chambray. Oxford cloth is woven in a 2/1 plain weave.

Uses: Shirts, sportswear, dresses, pajamas
