The name ‘Poplin’ was taken from the characteristics design of the fabric patterns. It has 133×72 numbers, which means every 1 inch on the cotton, there are 133 wrap and 72 weft threads. Poplin is made by applying either a plate or plain-woven. 

– Redundancy

The next type of Cotton is Twill. Similar to Poplin, Twill contains a fairly dense thread. What makes them differ from each other is their flexibility. Twill is able to stretch, thus it is easier to be designed or shaped. The weaving technique that is commonly applied to this fabric is 2/1 or 3/1. The composition of Twill cotton is natural cotton and polyester.

– Redundancy

Twill is not only easy to be shaped but also apparently has a strong texture. Therefore, Twill is suitable to use as material for office and field uniforms. Twill is often used to make jeans and polo shirts, which are known for their thickness. Unlike Poplin, the thickness of Twill makes it suitable to use in the winter. Twill has several types, including Natural, Synthetic, and Broken.
