Epinglé

wool fabric with a distinctive but subtle transverse ribbing, in which the ribs differ in thickness. Produced in various weights from worsted and carded yarns, and in linen or rep weave with several wefts woven into the open shed, or yarns of various finenesses. Used for ladies' dresses, and in more heavyweight form for ladies' coats and furniture covering. The term is from the French: epinglé = indented silk fabric.
