    light fabric

    When we say the expression "light fabric", are we refeering to:

    1. the color of the fabric?
    2. the weight of it?

    (I explain it: in my language we have 2 different words for "light", one for each meaning and both are used with "fabric")

    thank you!

    Re: light fabric

    It could be either: context will tell you.

    Silk is a light fabric, whereas tweed is a heavy one.>> the weight of the fabric.

    That light fabric is ideal for my minimalist white room >> its colour will not be wrong in my white room

    However, I would also say that "lightweight" and "light-coloured" are very often used to ensure that it is understood which is meant.
