Barathea, sometimes spelled barrathea,[1] is a soft fabric, with a hopsack twill weave giving a surface that is lightly pebbled or ribbed.[2] The yarns use cover various combinations of wool, silk and cotton. Worsted barathea (made with a smooth wool yarn) is often used for evening coats,[3] such as dress coats, dinner jackets, and military uniforms,[4] in black and midnight blue. Silk barathea, either all silk, or using cotton weft and silken warp, is widely used in the necktie industry.[1]
