Eyelash fabric is a voile fabric that is semi-crisp. It is reversible and quite transparent and characterised by the use of clipped yarns on the surface of the fabric. These clipped yarns sit away from the fabric, giving the appearance of eyelashes, hence the name. Eyelash fabric is mainly used for blouses, children’s wear and novelty applications. It is generally made from nylon of similar fibres and often metallic threads are incorporated into the weave.
