What is "Frise" - Definition & Explanation

Often made from rayon but can also be made from mohair, silk and synthetics. The ground or backing yarns are usually made of cotton. Sometimes jute or hemp is combined with the cotton. 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. Often used for overcoating material for soldiers. Irish frieze is quite popular and more reliable and is called "cotha more".
