Many people have such a question: "What is the difference between plain weave and twill? Which one is better?" In fact, each has its own advantages. The key is to see where you focus on those features and where they are used.

Plain weave, because the warp and weft yarns are intertwined once every other time, so the interlacing point is the most, the yarn bucks the most, making the fabric firm, wearable, hard, but less elastic, poor gloss; second plain cloth The appearance of the front and back is the same, the surface is flat, and the pattern is monotonous.

Twill, divided into single-sided twill and double-sided twill. The number of warp and weft interlacing is less than that of plain weave, so that the gap between the warp and weft yarns is small, the yarns can be closely arranged, so that the fabric has a dense density, is thicker, has better luster, is softer in hand, and has better elasticity than plain weave. Under the condition of the same density and thickness of the yarn, its abrasion resistance and fastness are not as good as those of plain weave.

It can be seen that the plain cloth is more suitable for some shirt pants, linings, jacquard fabric and the like which have higher requirements on the fastness and wear resistance. Twill fabrics are often used to make products such as bedding and T-shirts that have certain requirements for their sense of appeal and flexibility.
