Charmelaine

soft, loose-falling, midweight woollen fabric, with a fine, grainy surface which forms a steep ribbing on the face and a high lustre on the back. Produced from fine or medium-fine worsted yarns in the warp; in the weft coarser worsted yarns (which are twisted twice or more) or ondé fancy yarns are used. Its characteristic look is achieved by a three- or four-end twill weft weave or a five-end weft satin weave. Used for ladies' dresses, suits, and lightweight ladies' coats. The name is given by the French "charme" (= charm) and "laine" (= wool).
