Bengaline (Ben' Gal-Ene'). A dress fabric woven exactly like a Faille silk, except that a fine "worsted" thread is substituted for the weft. This weft (which forms its cords) is entirely covered and concealed by the fine, silk warp threads, so that the wool is not exposed from either surface. This same fabric, with a larger, thicker, and more decided cord, is termed Tyrolienne.
