Drill

firm and durable flaxen close-sett fabric, with a distinct twill weave. If the weave is of broken twill, it is referred to as twill drill; if of satin, it is known as satin drill. This fabric has had a wide range of applications, including for workwear, uniforms, straw mattresses and other technical purposes. The term "drill" is derived from the German "drellieren", meaning "to twist" or "to twine".
