Stencil Fabric

Any of a variety of woven materials used in screen printing on which a stencil is mounted to selectively allow ink to be transferred to the substrate. Stencil—or screen—fabrics can be woven from silk (the original fabric material, hence the obsolete term silkscreening), synthetic fibers (such as dacron), or finely-woven metal filaments, specifically stainless steel.
