An adjective used to describe a rough, primitively woven textile; traditionally, every household would spin their own yarn, so that the texture of woven fabric reflected not only the indigenous raw material sources but also the expertise of the spinner, evident from the fineness of the yarn.

Such textiles make great shabby chic covers and curtains, but homespun looking material may not be the most durable–do check the yarn quality for any furnishings meant for high wear areas.
