What is Twill Fabric?

Twill fabric is a form of textile weave and not a material. Twill is one of the oldest and essential weaves, along with stain and plain weave.  

The twill fabric has a diagonal pattern formed by passing the weft thread over the adjacent warp threads, then under the subsequent warp threads. An offset is added between the rows to bring out the diagonal weaving pattern. The fabric has a different front and backside. 

Types of Twill Fabric 

Since twill is a type of weave instead of material, there are several types. Here are some of the popular ones.

Natural Twill 

This type is obtained from natural fibers like cotton.

Synthetic Twill

As the name suggests, this type of twill fabric is acquired from synthetic fibers such as polyester. 

Zigzag Twill

Zigzag is the most common of the twill types and the easiest to identify because of its appearance.  

Diamond Twill 

The fabric looks more like diamonds, with multiple lines arranged in a circular pattern. 

Broken Twill

The fabric type has an alternating pattern, hence the name broken twill. 

Elongated Twill 

The fabric displays an elongated appearance obtained by crossing more weft threads with a single weave thread. 

Herringbone Twill 

Herringbone is a type of twill in which the weft and warp threads are of different colors.
