Fabric Tutorial - Poplin

poplin shirt
Definition: Poplin refers to fabrics which use a ribbed variation of a plain weave.The ribs run across the fabric, formed by coarse filling yarns.
A great way to visualize poplin is to think of a crisp but casual work-wear shirt. Poplin's crosswise fine rib weave will drape well, have a nice feel (hand) and a lustrous appearance.
Due to its tight weave, poplin takes both silscreening and embroidery very well.
Poplin comes in a variety of fabrics. The most common is 100% cotton known for its cool breathability. It is common in safari type wear and was used by the military in WW II.
Poplin is also available in wool, silk and polyester.
The word poplin supposedly comes from the Italian name Papalino, because the fabric was first manufactured in the papal town of Avignon in the 14th century.

April showers require an umbrella...
windproof umbrella

This is a personal sized wind proof and auto opening umbrella. Up until now most wind proof umbrellas were golf sized and weren't really suitable for individual use. This one is auto opening and folds down to about 15". Good selection of colors, from a superb supplier.

Very affordable for the level of features.
