In the UK, ‘calico’ is a plain weave, usually unbleached cotton which comes in various weights and is never printed. It is very cheap and we use it in dressmaking for making muslins.
I wish our calico were printed and pretty!!
I really like calico prints. Though I admit the actual term ‘calico’ always makes me think of Little House on the Prairie style clothing. :)
Like the commenter above mention for the UK, calico in Australia is also a plain weave unbleached cotton fabric. It’s usually what the US refers to as muslin.
It’s not fair to have yarn in the background of your photo and no ID it. It looks like Kid Seta but I can’t be sure. Am I right?
I’m not sure, it’s not my photo but I did provide a source for it, so perhaps that will answer your question.
