Twill (5)

plain, light- to heavyweight woollen fabric, which is full and soft to the touch, and sometimes slightly felted. Produced in a four- or six-end reversible twill weave. Finished by washing; sometimes lightly felted. Used for men's and ladies' suits, and trousers. The name is derived from the Scots "tweel", which describes the diagonal appearance of the weave.
