What is "Duvetyne" - Definition & Explanation

A good quality wool. If it is made in cotton, it is usually called suede cloth. Duvetyn has a close satin weave that is brushed, singed, and sheared to conceal the weave. It has a smooth plush appearance resembling a compact velvet and is similar to wool broadcloth but heavier and thicker. Has a good draping quality, soft and wears well if looked after. Spots easily and care must be taken when handling it. Back is often slightly napped also. Name derived from the French word "duvet" meaning "down".
Duvetyne has a light absorbing, brushed matte finish on one side. Because of its light weight (8 oz.), duvetyne is only minimally effective at concealing lighted areas. For this reason it is better for covering objects, than space.
