ZEUGMA \ˈzo͞ogmə\

n 1 a: A 95 percent organic-cotton textile that mimics the qualities of petroleum-based technical fabrics without synthetic chemicals or additives. b: Wicks away moisture, dries quickly, resists pilling, and stays colorfast but with the breathability of cotton, making it an apt choice for workout clothes and other activewear. c: Made with a proprietary spinning process that mechanically aligns and tightly interconnects cotton fibers to produce long, smooth filaments. 2: Named for a figure of speech in which a word applies to two others in different senses. 3: Found in yoga pants, tunics, and jumpsuits by Prancing Leopard, the first company to introduce Zeugma cotton to apparel.
