English term or phrase: downproof
Definition from
A fabric which resists the penetration of down. The fabric may be closely woven to be downproof by nature or may be cired or coated to make it downproof.

Example sentence(s):
  • Threadcount is only part of the story when considering a fine downproof fabric for your down comforters. Even more important is the type and size of yarn, and the density with which it is woven (different than threadcount).
  • This 30 denier 1.1 oz/sq yd downproof nylon ripstop is breathable and extremely lightweight. It is a high quality choice for shells, ultralite quilts and sleeping bags.
  • Placing reliance on thread count as an indicator of the downproof quality of fabric is a mistake. What is important is the type and size of yarn, the density with which it is woven (which is a different issue than thread count), and the specialized finishing techniques needed to insure the fabric's downproof qualities.
