Polyester Taffeta Twill Linings
Twill weaves are the weaves that find a wide range of applications. They can be constructed in a variety of ways. The main feature of these weaves that distinguishes them from other types is the presence of pronounced diagonal lines that run along the width of the fabric.

Twill weave is distinguished by diagonal lines. The simplest twill is the one created by the weft crossing over two warp yarns, then under one, the sequence being repeated in each succeeding shot (pick), but stepped over, one warp either to the left or right. Twills with more warps than wefts floating on the fabric’s face are called warp faced; those with wefts predominating, weft faced. The angle of the twill can also vary.

Twills can be varied by changing the relative number of warps and wefts in each repeat (2:1, 2:3, 3:1, 6:2, etc.); by stepping the repeat in one direction; by breaking the direction of the diagonals formed by the twill at regular intervals; by reversing the
direction of the diagonal at regular intervals to form chevrons or lozenges; or by combining several twills or modifying them to create a pattern.

Twills drape better than plain weaves with the same yarn count because twills have fewer interlacings. Twill weaves have been used throughout history in many weights and textures, from wool serges mentioned in medieval French manuscripts to English diapered (diamond patterned) table linens, patterned bed coverlets, and Indian shawls.
Characteristics of Twill Weaves:

The basic characteristics of twill weaves are :
  1. They form diagonal lines from one selvedge to another.
  2. More ends per unit area and picks per unit area than plain cloth.
  3. Less binding points than plain cloth
  4. Better cover than plain weave
  5. More cloth thickness and mass per unit area
Classification of Twill Weaves:

The twill weaves are produced in a wide variety of forms. They are however classified broadly into important categories, namely:
  1. Ordinary or continuous twills
  2. Zigzag, pointed or wavy twills
  3. Rearranged twills such as satin/sateen weaves and corkscrew weaves
  4. Combination twills
  5. Broken twills
  6. Figured and other related twill weaves
The above types of twills are further sub-classified as:

a) Warp face twills
b) Weft face twills
c) Warp and weft face twills
