Twill weave (2)

has the smallest repeat (S/3), which means that three warp and three weft threads are rotated in various interlacings which are persistently repeated, thus forming diagonal rows. If warp threads predominate on the face, we refer to a warp t. w.; a weft t. w. has a majority of weft threads on the face. Used with a very wide variety of fabric types, the most important of which include: cross, broken, interrupted, pieced-up point, combined, shaded sateen, stitched, stepped, reinforced and reverse twill.
