Raschel Knit

In knitting. Raschel knits have a lacelike, open construction, with a heavy, textured yarn held in place by a much finer yarn. Raschels can be made in a variety of types, ranging from fragile to coarse, and usually have limited stretch. The fabric may be of either high or low lustre. If the crepe effect is the right side of the fabric, the fabric is called satin-back.
