Drugget, a coarse fabric, either all wool, or one half wool and the other cotton, linen, or silk. The name, which is French, is of doubtful origin.

Druggets are used to protect carpets, or instead of them, the finer kinds being used as table covers, etc. A similar material (half linen) was formerly used as clothing.
