Lustre fabric

resilient, lustrous, lightweight woollen fabric which is somewhat rough to the touch and has a fine porous surface and a noticeable linen, panama, or, less commonly, twill weave. In the warp and weft, fine woollen yarn from special glossy sheep's wool or mohair is used. In the past l. f. was woven from cotton yarns in the warp and coarser mohair or lustrine yarns in the weft, giving the fabric its name. Used for ladies' dresses and men's summer suits. Its original use was for linings and work clothes. The name is derived from the French.
