The Difference Between Plain, Twill and Satin Fabric
In daily life, when we go shopping for bedding, we always hear that this is plain weave, this is twill weave, this is satin weave (satin) and so on. But in fact, many people are at a loss after hearing this. I don't understand what is better. The fabric supplier will talk about the characteristics and identification of these three fabrics.
It refers to a fabric formed by cross-weaving the warp and weft in the textile production process. The three basic ways of interweaving warp and weft for woven fabrics are plain weave, twill and satin (satin). According to the weaving method, fabrics are divided into plain fabrics, twill fabrics and satin (satin) fabrics.
Refers to a fabric woven with a plain weave structure. Plain weave: The weave formed by interweaving warp yarns and wefts one after another is called plain weave.
Plain weave fabric has many interweaving points, firm texture, smooth surface, the same appearance on the front and back, lighter and thinner, and better air permeability. The structure of the plain weave determines its lower density and rougher touch. Generally speaking, the price of plain fabric is relatively low.
Refers to a fabric woven with a twill weave structure.
Twill Weave: The weave where the warp weave points (or weft weave points) continuously form diagonal lines is called the twill weave.
Twill fabrics are easier to identify, because the interweaving points of the warp and weft of the twill fabric present a certain angle of twill structure on the surface of the fabric. It is characterized by the front and back sides, with fewer interweaving points, longer floating lines, slightly rough touch, higher density, thicker products, and stronger three-dimensional organization.
Refers to a fabric woven with a satin weave structure.
Warp surface satin: there are more warp weave points than weft weave points. Or the front surface of the fabric presents the warp satin pattern, which is mostly long.
Weft Satin: there are more weft weave points than warp weave points. Or the front of the fabric presents a weft satin pattern with the majority of weft floats.
Satin fabrics are more expensive than similar plain and twill fabrics, with higher fabric density and thicker fabrics. Moreover, the cloth surface is smoother, finer, softer, with good luster, bright color, good elasticity, compact texture and not easy to deform, and has an excellent touch.
to sum up
Plain weave, twill, and satin (satin) are the most basic three interweaving methods of warp and weft. Satin (satin) fabric is the finest of pure cotton yarn textile fabrics in terms of craftsmanship and comfort, but the cost is higher, so it is sold. The price is also relatively high.
