Galloon (Gal-Oon'). [From It. gallone, finery,] Originally, worsted lace, especially a closely-woven lace like a narrow ribbon or tape for binding. In modern use a trimming similar to the above, of wool, silk, tinsel, cotton, or a combination of any of these; also, a kind of gold or silver lace with a continuous even edge used on uniforms, liveries and band caps.
