Cotton Weaves


Plain weave: For the entire length of the fabric, each warp yarn passes alternately over one and then under one filling yarn.  This is the simplest and most commonly used weave.

Basket weave: This simple type of textile weave involves groups of warp and weft threads that are interlaced, forming a criss-cross pattern.  Basketweave can easily be identified by its checkered appearance, made of multiple threads in each group.

Terry weave: Medium weight fabric with low-twist yarns forming surface loops that are un-clipped.  100% terry cotton is super absorbent.
