Tricotine

elastic, soft, midweight woollen fabric, with angled ribbing which is more or less prominent, and a clear, bold weave which resembles a knit. This look is achieved by a two-step twill drawn from a stitched twill with a close-sett warp. The back is lightly combed. Produced from fine worsted yarn. Used for men's suits, and ladies' dresses and suits. The name is given by the French "tricot" (= knit), to which this type of fabric approximates in its surface look and comparable elasticity and extensibility.
