AskDefine | Define noil

Extensive Definition

Noil is the short fiber left over from combing wool or spinning silk. Silk noil is also called "raw silk", although that is a misnomer. As noil is a relatively short fiber, fabric made from noil is weaker and considered less valuable.
The plural noils is also used, and means the same as noil.
