Cabric verus cambric

When I came across this link titled, cabric fabric stores in my mind I thought of the Simon and Garfunkle song, "Scarborough Fair" and I thought perhaps it was cabric not cambric that is in the lyrics.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt
(On the side of a hill in the deep forest green)
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
(Tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground)
Without no seams nor needlework
(Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain)
Then she'll be a true love of mine
(Sleeps unaware of the clarion call)

It is cambric, but despite making me think about song lyrics to a song that I used to sing to my children when they were babies to get them to sleep, and being relieved that after all these years I was singing it correctly, there are some nice fabrics for sale on the website. Including cambric...
