As Voile ( French for veil ) is called a transparent, fine denier, linen weave woven fabric . The threads ( crepe yarns ) that are interwoven, twisted and thus crimped in the voile result in the smallest air holes in the fabric, which ensure good air circulation. The fabric feels slightly sandy.
Voile is often made into men's shirts. Chiffon is similar , it is mostly used for women's clothing (blouses).
The voile used to be sewn onto a hat and then left over the face like a veil. Today it is still used as a wedding veil.
