Poplin (3)

woollen p. is an elastic, lightweight fabric which is soft to the touch and has a fine transverse ribbing; in linen weave and from worsted yarns. Ribbing is achieved by a larger pick in the warp. Used for ladies' blouses and dresses. The name is given by the French "papeline" (= papal), as the original poplins with a silk warp and woollen weft were produced in Avignon at the time this town was the seat of the Pope.
