White Swiss is by nature very crisp almost paper-like, translucent and fine like muslin. This woven fabric is created using highly twisted fine cotton yarns. Due to these characteristics, it will hold creases and pleats. When washed this will maintain its stiffness as it is treated with a special chemical finishing process (not starch which would wash out).
