Broken twill

derived twill weave from base reinforced or stitched twills; after plotting the base repeat returns in the opposite direction, taking sharp turns in the weaving sequence, so that the binding point of the weft is opposite the binding point of the warp, and vice versa. Typically, breaking is lengthwise, creating on the fabric a streaky figure resembling a fishbone (hence the name fishbone pattern), but it may also be diagonal. This weave is used with cotton fabrics and still more frequently with woollen fabrics.
