Best Answer

Twill is fabric that has a diagonal pattern. It is actually woven in such a way as to create diagonal "ribs" in the fabric itself (not just colored diagonal lines). Think of cordoroy - that is a fabric with a vertical (up and down) pattern woven into it. Twill is diagonal weaving. If a twill fabric has extra "give" so that it can expand (stretch), it is a stretch twill.

Stretch twill often refers to the fabric having a small percentage of lycra/spandex in it, usually 2-4%.

How can you identify a twill woven fabric easily?

The easiest way to identify a twill weave is if the fabric appears to have a diagonal "texture"- this is caused by the offset of weft and warp threads when the fabric is woven (for example, over once, under twice. As opposed to over once, under once as a normal weave). The grain of the fabric is not actually diagonal, but the twill weave gives it that appearance.
