Poly Cotton Twill Material | 60″ Width and Preshrunk | White or Black Color
We are often asked by our many customers to define twill. In the twill material weave, each horizontal weft (or filling yarn) floats across the vertical warp yarns in a progression of interlacings to the right or left. This forms a pattern of distinct diagonal lines, and which twill is often noted for. This diagonal pattern is also known as a wale. A float is the portion of a yarn that crosses over two or more perpendicular yarns. In our poly cotton twill, two polyester threads are raised up and over the one cotton thread, forming a 2/1 weave.
When we seek to define twill, it goes without saying that you must first define the unique weave and pattern, and which makes it such a unique and durable fabric material.
