Recognizable by its steep (63º) and clear right-hand twill line, whipcord is like a heavier version of gabardine. Originally wool or worsted, it can be made of cotton, manufactured fibers or blends. The back is sometimes slightly napped if wool. It is a sturdy (particularly if wool) medium to heavy weight fabric.

Uses: Coats, suits, riding habits, uniforms, sportswear
