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.

NOTE:

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.
