Frisé; frieze (2)

light- to midweight silk or wool fabric with a grainy and lightly corrugated surface structure which is accentuated by its transverse arrangement. Used most commonly in linen weave; its characteristic look is given by the use of fancy yarn. Used for ladies dresses, and in heavyweight form for ladies' suits and coats. The name is taken from the French "friser" - to curl - in reference to the crimped surface of the fabric.
