What is "Barré Knitted Fabric" - Definition & Explanation

A clearly defined band (q.v.) or bands that run (s) full width across an open-width fabric or spirally in a tubular fabric, and differ (s) in appearance from the adjacent normal fabric as the result of variation of yarn characteristics.

NOTE:

"When the yarn is of a different colour (owing to differential dyeing) from that of the rest of the fabric, that defect is termed "barriness)."
