Tsumugi is a kind of fabric that tsumugi yarn , spun from floss silk , is used as either warp thread or weft thread , or both of them on weaving .
Tsumugi yarn , supposedly inferior to the silk yarn from hon mayu , also referred to as tama yarn (spun from tama mayu , which means round cocoons ) or irregular-shaped kuzu mayu (rubbish cocoons ) is thicker and uneven.
Compared to the fabric using silk yarn from hon mayu , which has the luster of its own , tsumugi has the dimmer luster and small bumps on the surface , which makes it have the unique feel.
-Tsumugi in Wikipedia.

One of the most famous Japanese Tsumugi, 大島紬 "Oshima Tsumugi", is said to be one of the three major textiles in the world along with Iranian Persian carpet and French gobelin weaving.
