When referring to a property that is always present as property that is always present (i.e. generically), no article is required but neither is it wrong to use one:

When selecting your curtains, remember to specify color and thread-count.
When ordering paint, you can choose not only color but finish.
Auto-tune can modulate not only pitch but timbre.
You can order pizza with this app. There's a multi-select checklist for toppings and a radio-button group for size.

The weight I provided when filling out the bill of lading was
