Hopsack(ing)

heavyweight wool fabric, distinguished by its keenness to the touch and its grainy surface and distinctive structure in reinforced satin weave from worsted or carded yarn. Used for men's suits and light coats. The name is derived from the English "hopsacking" - a jute fabric which was used on hop pockets; its structure is reminiscent of this type of fabric.
