Twill Fabric

What is Twill Fabric ?

  • Twill fabric is any fabric made with a special weaving technique that results in diagonal ridges in the fabric. It is not specific to any particular fiber and can be made from cotton, linen, silk or man-made fibers.
  • A few different natural and synthetic fibers are used to make twill, and this fabric can also be made in various patterns.

     Here are some examples of the different types of twill that are offered:

  1.  Natural twill: Some types of twill fabric are made from natural fibers like cotton.
  2. Synthetic twill: Other types of twill fabric are made from synthetic textiles such as polyester.
  3.  Zigzag twill: This type of twill is the most common form of this weave, and it features the diagonal pattern that makes this type of weave recognizable.
  4.  Herringbone twill: Some textile experts consider herringbone to be its own fabric, but it's actually a derivative of twill. This type of fabric displays an iconic zigzag pattern that is accomplished with weft and warp threads that are different colors.
  5.  Diamond twill: When viewed in a complete fabric, diamond twill takes on the appearance of diamonds that are composed of multiple concentric lines. These diamonds are arranged parallel to each other throughout the fabric. While this type of twill is sometimes used to make apparel, it is also common to see it as a pattern in rugs.
  6.  Diaper twill: This type of twill was originally used to make diapers, and it displays a complex diamond-shaped pattern.
  7.  Broken twill: No, this type of twill isn't torn or otherwise damaged; it simply displays an alternating pattern.
  8.  Elongated twill: This type of twill is woven by crossing more weft threads with a single weave thread, which results in an elongated appearance.
