What is "Hopsack Weave" - Definition & Explanation
A modification of a plain weave in which two or more warp yarns weave together as one and two or more weft yarns weave together as one.
The basic hopsack weaves may be modified in a number of ways, such as:
a) by introducing additional interlacings to give a firmer cloth, e.g. stitched hopsack weave;
b) by arranging the interlacing in diagonal lines, e.g. twilled hopsack weave.
