Pencil Stripes

Pencil Stripes are stripes of varying widths. They are usually thicker than pinstripes but narrower than Bengal stripes. The colours used are generally one light colour and one dark colour to create a dramatic contrast. The lines are usually the thickness of a line drawn by a pencil but the gaps in between are very large. This fabric can be colour woven, using different colour yarns.
