    To be technical:
    mot·tled (mtld)
    adj.
    Spotted or blotched with different shades or colors.

    Some people call these "blenders" too.

    Here are some pictures!

    (scroll down a teeny bit to see the fabrics)

    Hope this helps!

    :D

    Sometimes there is a little design printed on the fabric too...in the same tones.
