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%.
