Poplin

Description : A mid to heavy weight, densely woven fabric with a fine horizontal rib, a shiny surface, poplin is easy to iron and doesn't wrinkle easily.
Fabrication : Poplin is a fabric made from combining yarns from different fibres. Originally, poplin was made with a silk warp with a weft of worsted wool yarn. This combination gives the fabric the lustre characteristic of silk, but a ridged structure due to the wool. Today, poplin is made with a variety of fibres, including wool, cotton, silk, rayon, polyester and other synthetic fibres, but retains these characteristics.
