Reform weave

weave composed by means of auxiliary w. of reinforced reversible twills, stitched twills, stepped, steeped twills, warp satin , reinforced and atlas constructions with pieced-up points, or adria or twill weaves. The same thread is interlaced by rotation on the fabric face in the chosen weave; on the back it is allowed to lie free. In the areas where the thread of the back lies free, the neighbouring thread on the face continues the weave. Where there is an interchange of warp and weft threads, we distinguish between warp r. w., weft r. w., and r. w. with a laid-in weft. The most common is warp r. w., which is used in the production of fabrics for men's suits and trousers and lightweight fabrics for coats (from worsted yarn). R. w. gives the fabric face the look of a single weave; the plain surface of its back resembles fabrics in satin weave.
