\lē-()nō-\ n [per. fr. F linon linen fabric, lawn, fr. MF lin flax, linen, fr. L linum flax] (1821) A weave in which the warp yarns are arranged in pairs with one twisted around the other between picks of filling yarn as in marquisette. This type of weave gives firmness and strength to an open weave fabric and prevents slippage and displacement of warp and filling yarns. (Kadolph SJJ, Langford AL (2001) Textiles.
