Are you thinking of Butte Knits from the early 60's? They were the first company to manufacture double knits. I was a textile buyer at one time and I believe they spun, knit, and made the garments in one place. My 'going away suit' (honeymoon) in 1965 was an off white Butte Knit suit, three pieces, straight skirt, shell and Chanel style jacket with about a 1/2" of seed pearls all around the edges. Beautiful!
