The frieze (also the frieze , French: frise 'fluff') or fluff is a thick, fluffy, woolly blend of wool or cotton yarns . As a cloth-like worsted yarn fabric in a twill weave , it is also known as a coating .
Colloquially, frieze is often confused with unwoven felt . It is a thick, long-haired fabric made from coarse yarn that is heavily milled , but little roughened and sheared; this is followed by hot pressing and brushing. In some cases a finishing compound is used to increase the gloss itself .
