Fabrics woven from worsted yarns utilise their lustrous characteristics to produce smooth fabrics suitable for linings and as a cheaper alternative to silks.  The particular qualities give a smooth, clear surface where the weave is clearly visible.  Those woven with a loose, flexible structure are more applicable to linings, ones with a closer, more solid construction are suitable for outer garments in their own right.
