1. Finely knitted fabric that can be made of natural or man-made fibers, to produce a lightweight & sophisticated material, commonly used in women's clothing.

2. Hipsters didn't invent slow-drip coffee, a.k.a. "the pour over method", it actually goes as far back as the 1920's! Brewing coffee by boiling the water first, then pouring it over a filter filled with (French-ground) coffee was said to be healthier -- less acidic than drip brew. * such devices may also be called a "tricolator".
