A twill weave has a pattern that looks like diagonal lines.
A 1/3 twill means you weave under one warp yarn and over three.
You start each row one along from the previous row.
This creates the diagonal line pattern.
You can use one, two or more yarns together in your weft, like in any weave.
The weft yarns will hide the warp yarns. (This is called a ‘weft faced ’weave. It means that you can really only see the weft yarns on the front of the fabric. We call the front of the fabric the ‘face’.)
