If you are a consumer who often buys Tencel fabrics, you should have heard of the terms plain and twill, but unless you are a professional or someone who knows this type of fabric very well, it is difficult to tell exactly what plain and twill fabrics are. , Knowledge thinks this should be just a difference in textile texture.

Of course, the plain weave and twill Tencel fabrics are indeed different in the texture and organization of the placement, but the difference is not as simple as everyone thinks. The warp and weft of the plain weave Tencel are interwoven once every other yarn, so there is an interweaving point. It has the characteristics of stiff texture and the same appearance effect on the front and back. This kind of fabric is lighter and thinner, and has good air permeability. The price of plain weave tencel with a count of about 30 is relatively common, and it is considered cheap and good quality.

As for twill Tencel, the warp and weft are interlaced at least once every two yarns. The weave structure of the fabric can be changed by increasing or decreasing the interweaving point of warp and weft. They are collectively referred to as twill fabric, and those with tencel are twill tencel. Twill weave is characterized by its front and back sides, with fewer interweaving points, longer floating lines, soft feel, higher fabric density, thicker products, and stronger three-dimensionality. The commonly used counts are 21, 30, 40, and 60. Among them, 21 and 30 twill Tencel fabrics are the most conventional Tencel fabrics.
