What is "Gaberdine" - Definition & Explanation

A firmly woven, warp-faced twill cloth.
Worsted fabric with pronounced twill face.
Fabric made of cotton, wool or rayon similar to a heavy and compact serge. Widely used in the manufacturing of sportswear, trousers, uniforms and raincoats.
These weaves give the characteristic single-diagonal lines noted on the face of the cloth. There are twice as many threads per inch in the warp than there are in the weft. Because of the twist in the yarn and texture, the cloth wears very well and outlasts similar materials used for the same purpose.
A Tightly Woven Durable Twill, Usually 2x2 Right Handed, With A Distinct Twill Line. Common Used In Men's And Women's Trousers, Rainwear And A Variety Of Other Uses.
Gabardine is a tough, tightly woven fabric used to make suits, overcoats and trousers, or a garment made from the material. The fibre used to make the fabric is traditionally worsted (a woolen yarn), but may also be cotton, synthetic or mixed. The fabric is smooth on one side and has a diagonally ribbed surface on the other.
