Name of a lightweight tightly more warp threads than filling woven plain weave fabric where a coarser yarn is used for the filling than the warp, leaving a slight rib effect across the width of the goods. US customs define this fabric as not of rectangular construction, whether napped or not, weighing less than 200 grams per square meters, containing 33 or fewer warp ends and filling picks per square centimetre. Poplin or popeline is a name given to a class of goods distinguished by a rib or cord effect running width way of the piece. It referred originally to a fabric having a silk warp and a figure of wool filling heavier than the warp.
