What is twill fabric?

Twill is one of the three main textile fabrics, the other two being satin and plain. Warp and weft are interwoven at least once every two yarns. Warp and weft interweaving points are added to change the fabric structure, which is collectively called twill fabric.

Twill is most often used to create harder-wearing textiles. It isn’t a fabric that is usually printed, but it can be woven to create distinctive patterns and use mixed colored yarn to show designs in the weave itself. Twill can also have a double-sided pattern in the weave, depending on how it is woven.

The key characteristics of twill weave are the diagonal patterns created by the woven rows being offset from one another. It comes in a range of weights, thread counts, colours and styles.

Twill fabric fabric characteristics: there are positive and negative points, a complete tissue cycle within the interweaving point less, floating line is longer, feel soft, fabric density is higher, the product is thicker, the three-dimensional sense of tissue is stronger. There are 30, 40 and 60 branches.

You most commonly see twill fabric used to make jeans, tweed, chinos and upholstery and home furnishings (such as tablecloths, curtains, cushions and towels).

Each row is offset from the one above, which creates the diagonal pattern. Twill weaves are categorized into fractions to denote how they were woven. For example, a twill labeled as 3/1 means that the weft is woven over three warp threads and under one warp thread.
