A hairline stripe is a very thin stripe. It is usually made by using either a different colour warp of weft thread, depending on the direction of the stripe. These stripes are usually just one warp of weft thick as they tend to be the same diameter as a human hair. Hairline stripes are usually grouped together to create a contrast against the background of the fabric.
