What is twill fabric?

Twill is a fabric made from cotton or mixed fibers including cotton. Today it is mainly a mixed material, natural and synthetic components of which perfectly complement each other in various proportions. Compared with twill or satin materials, the twill has a higher density. It is more comfortable and resistant to external influences. The fabric does not stretch and does not change shape even after long use.

As a rule, twill is a plain canvas. Painting technologies of Italian manufacturers guarantee the preservation of color for a long time, as well as the resistance to ultraviolet radiation. If necessary, a designer print or camouflage print is applied to the material.

Benefits of Italian twill

What distinguishes high quality Italian twill:

  • Appealing and delicate appearance;

  • Excellent resistance to deformation;
  • Resistance to ultraviolet;
  • Wash, iron and store easily;
  • Hypoallergenic natural cotton twill;
  • Ability to dry quickly.

Types of Italian twill

  • Twill satin, or cotton twill. Italian designers are fond of it, because it is ideal for sewing summer clothes. Maximum air permeability is ensured by cotton fibers;
  • Twill stretch (silk twill). 2-3% elastane is added to natural cotton threads. Thanks to this, the products acquire elasticity and do not crumple;
  • Mixed twill. Depending on the manufacturer’s tasks, from 3 to 70% of artificial materials (most often polyester) are added to the cotton structure. The resulted material is mainly used for the production of workwear and casual suits.

What is twill fabric good for?
