Afgalaine

Light- to midweight soft, wool fabric with a characteristic fine shaded lengthwise stripe created by the reflection of light given by alternating S twist and Z twist thread in the warp and in the weft. Woven in linen weave, predominantly as a fabric dyed as single piece. Produced from worsted and carded yarn, sometimes the two in combination. The fabric is used in women's and girls' dresses. The name is derived from Afghan wool, from which this fabric was produced originally.
