Room at Plas Mawr, the walls hung with reproduction Dornix

Dornix, also known as dornicks and darnacle, is a wool and linen fabric, first used in the 16th century.

Dornix originated in the Dutch town of Doornijk in the 15th century and was made from a combination of wool and linen.[1] It was a coarse close, similar to kersey, and used on beds, hangings, curtains and similar purposes.[2] It was popular in middle-class English homes in the 15th century.[3] Manufacture spread to the Dutch town of Lille, and to Norwich in England, where substantial manufacture continued until the 18th century.[4]
