“Using a Triple Weave either as a lining or stand-alone fabric will provide long term benefits by protecting soft furnishings from fading and degradation.”

— James Dunlop Textiles

A Triple Weave or dimout fabric is an advanced construction utilising three interwoven layers. The centre layer is the key element within a triple weave as it uses a black yarn. This black yarn allows only a small amount of light to pass through and aides in insulation.

 

It is a popular fabric or lining choice in both commercial and residential applications due to its affordability, washability and noise reduction properties. It has a soft, thick handle which adds fullness to light weight fabric such as silk or taffeta.

 

The benefit of a triple weave is it can used as a stand-alone fabric for Drapery. This provides an affordable option which doesn’t compromise on design or functionality.

Using a Triple Weave either as a lining or stand-alone fabric will provide long term benefits by protecting soft furnishings from fading and degradation. Linings can also improve the fullness of a Curtain and complement the finished look of the drape. Some other advantages to Triple Weaves include: the creation of a thermal insulation layer, resistance to dust and mildew, creates a dark room environment and stronger acoustic properties with the extra layers.
