As rayon (interchangeable with Viscose®) is a manufactured staple fiber, it lends a matte appearance with decent abrasion resistance and a cool hand, giving a softer touch and drapery experience to rayon or rayon blended dobby weave fabrics. Surface texture is always present, although the level of texture relies on the fiber(s) and types of yarns used; several weaves can be used in combination with a dobby weave, which factors into the level of texture as well. Textiles created with the complex-to-produce dobby weave are recognized for their intricate geometric woven-in designs. Note, rayon dobby fabrics are always woven, never knit, and are often of a light to medium weight (depending on any fiber blends or contrasting weaves). Dobby fabrics—more often than not—turn into outstanding, stylish clothing with a breath a sophistication—all one needs is an imaginative mindset and a touch of creativity!
