(pronounced skroop)

No, we didn’t make this word up. We learned it from textile expert and P&C Contributor, Deb Barrett. Scroop is the crisp rustling or scrunching sound that occurs when one handles certain cellulosic fabrics, especially silks treated with particular organic acids. If you’ve ever worn or have been around someone who has worn a taffeta dress, you know exactly what we’re talking about.
