It has a pile (looped) weave with uncut loops. It can be patterned by shearing the loops at different lengths. Some made with both cut and uncut loops in the form of a pattern. Typically used in upholstery, Frise is also spelled Frieze but frieze really refers to a rough, fuzzy, rizzy, boardy woolen overcoating fabric which originated in Friesland Holland.
