What is twill fabric?

Our buckwheat pillows are made with a custom woven fabric developed just for our pillows. Organic cotton is what our fabric is made from. Twill is how the fabric threads are woven together.



Think about weaving - a weft thread will go under, over, under, over a warp thread. Twill fabric is made by changing the pattern so the weft thread will go over more than one warp thread before going back under. There is also a step between weft threads. This creates a diagonal pattern in the fabric.



Denim is a good example of twill fabric. If you're wearing jeans, take a look and see if you can see the diagonal pattern in them. Like a good pair of jeans, the twill we use to make our pillows is durable for many years of use. Unlike jeans, our fabric is undyed natural cotton.
