Marengo

mid-to heavyweight woollen fabric which is soft to the touch, with a fine, pile surface which conceals slightly its reversible four- or six-bond twill weave. Woven from fine carded or worsted yarns, and typically comprising at least 5% white wool, with its remainder being of black fibres - giving it its black surface with fine white frosting. Used for men's suits, and ladies' suits and lightweight coats. The name is given by the French "marengo" (= grey and black), which expresses the colour of this fabric.
