What is "Twill Weave" - Definition & Explanation

A fundamental weave characterized by diagonal lines, usually at a 45 degree angle. In a warp-faced twill, the warp yarns produce the diagonal effect. It is one of the three basic weaves, the others being plain and satin. All weaves, either simple, elaborate or complex, are derived from these three weaves. Twill is the most common weave for bottom-weight uniform fabrics.
A basic weave in which the fabrics are constructed by interlacing warp and filling yarns in a progressive alternation which creates a diagonal effect on the face, or right side, of the fabric. In some twill weave fabrics, the diagonal effect may also be seen clearly on the back side of the fabric.
Twill is a type of fabric woven with a pattern of diagonal parallel ribs. It is made by passing the weft threads over one warp thread and then under two or more warp threads. Examples of twill fabric are gabardine, tweed and serge.
Weft interlaced with warp to form diagonal ridges infabric.
Is stronger than Plain Weave. Each weft wire alternatively crosses over two, then under two warp wires. Twill weave is usually used to accomodate a heavier than standard wire diameter in association with a given mesh.
A weave in which the filling strand goes over and under several warp strands, creating diagonal ridges across the fabric.
