Weight per unit length (linear density) measure of a continuous filament or yarn, used traditionally in textile industry. It expresses weight in grams of nine kilometers (9000 meters) length of the material. Therefore lower the danier number, finer the material; and higher the danier number, coarser the material. In most countries other than the US, it has been replaced by the Tex system where one denier equals 1/9th of a tex or 10/9th of decitex.
