What is "Huckaback" - Definition & Explanation
Huckaback is a type of coarse absorbent cotton or linen fabric used for making towels.
Made from linen or cotton in a dobby or basket weave. It is strong, but rough in the surface finish. Has variation in weaves but most have small squares on the surface that stand out from the background. The motif is made from a series of floats, some of them rather long, which gives a loose effect in certain areas. This, if well spaced, acts as a good absorbing agency. Mostly used for towels.
A soft toweling fabric with short, loosely twisted filling floats to aid absorption, and a birdseye or honeycomb surface texture. It is sometimes embroidered.
A weave used principally for towels and glass-cloths in which a rough surface effect is created on a plain ground texture by weaving short floats, whereby warp floats are on one side of the fabric and weft floats are on the other.
A stout linen fabric with weft threads thrown alternately up so as to form a rough surface; used for towels.
