Nebuly, (fr. nebulé): an undulating line of division, which being intended to represent clouds is drawn horizontally; when applied to the field, however, it is usually described as barry nebuly, q.v. But it may also be applied to ordinaries such as the fesse and chevron; but not to an ordinary so as to interfere with its horizontal position. It is liable to be confused from careless drawing with undy or wavy, and in ancient armoury with vair; but though the term does not occur in early blazon, it was in later blazon no doubt intended to denote a different form from either.
