A direct numbering system for expressing linear density, equal to the mass in grams per 9000m of yarn, filament, fiber, or other textile strand. Density: This is defined as the weight of a material per unit volume. Units - pounds per cubic inch (lb/cu in) grams/cubic centimeter. Higher numbers indicate heavier materials. Note: Density in lbs/cu in, and Specific Gravity are conveniently related by the following ratio: Density (lb/cu in) Density (gr/cu cm) -------------------- = 0.0361 -------------------- = 0.9975 Specific Gravity Specific Gravity

At the time a coin of alloyed silver and copper weighing 10 to 14 Troy grains ( OED). There were 12 deniers in a sol, and 20 sols in a livre. As a small weight the Paris denier was 1/384 of a pound (1.275 grams) (Zupko). When it appears to be used for larger weights or volumes, the meaning is unknown. It may refer to the amount of a particular ingredient that could be purchased for one denier (see the French Glossary under denree). At the prices mentioned in Power and Aliquot, a denier's worth of ginger would be about a quarter of a Paris ounce. The rarer spices (six different ones) were between 5 and 10 times as expensive as ginger. If this applied to turmeric, a denier's worth would be about 1/20 to 1/40 of a Paris ounce. Similarly, a denier's worth of wine would be about half a Paris pint.

A denier is a unit of weight used to measure the fineness of silk and man-made fibers, especially when woven into women's tights. · ecollete A bra style with a very low-cut front panel to create a dramatic cleavage-enhancing look. · emi Bra A demi cup (or demi) style bra means a contoured underwire design with a large portion of the upper half of the cup being cut away to expose the upper part of the breasts. The shoulder straps are also set farther apart (wide-set). These types of bras are worn when the top of a garment is cut low, wide or square. Men find this style of bra very attractive on women. Can also be called a balconette or a shelf bra.

The denier is a coin that had currency in New France in the XVIIth century. The value of things was then calculated in deniers, in sols and in livres . There were twelve deniers to the sol and 20 sols to a livre. Other coins were used in the colony : the louis, the écu, the pistole and the guinea. In 1669, an old overcoat fetched 10 livres and you would have to spend up to 100 sols for a pair of shoes.
