  • Individual strands of yarn are dyed before being woven or knit into fabric. Characteristic of articles produced (often hand produced) in Latin America and madras fabric, which originated in India. Yarn-dyed fabric often has an interesting, unique feel because of uneven thread diameter and is considered higher quality because it resists fading.
  • A yoke is a “band” at the top of a garment over the shoulder area. The yoke may be a separate piece of fabric seamed into the lower garment or, on a sweater, may be a patterned or single-color area across the upper chest and shoulder area. The yoke adds variety to a garment.
