German term or phrase: 1-lagig
Probenlage: 1-lagig

This is in the results from a test report. They are calculating colour coordinates for a 2-ply laminate fabric. I understand the "Probenlage" to be the "sample orientation" - i.e. generally horizontal or vertical, so I'm unsure of how to translate "1-lagig" here.

Notes to answerer
Asker: This is all I could think of too, but I don't see how it fits with "Probenlage"?

agree  Hilary Davies Shelby: it's "ply" for things like tissues, toilet paper, etc - does it work for fabric too?
