    I looks somewhat like twill, but I guess the name is different for a reason.

    I think that he is a character in the Harry Potter books.

    The first time I've ever seen that term was last night when I was browsing the Jantzen web site and found this page with swatches of dobby fabric. It looks to be any fabric with a textured weave. Someone else might have a better definition.

    A house elf. Also, the second most annoying movie character of all time after Jar Jar.

    ...though in dobby's case, his annoyingness is intentional. the movies have been relatively faithful to the books.

    for jar-jar, there's just no excuse. somebody should've slapped lucas before he committed that character to film.

    I haven't seen Revenge of the Sith yet but I've been hoping for six years now that Jar Jar gets lightsabered or worse.

    And "it's a elf" just may make it as a new catchphrase!
