Twill weave is in which the weft yarn is passed over and under one, two, or three warp. Used for durability, this weave produces a diagonal design. Knitting is contructing fabric by looping yarn together. Its made with only one yarn that runs crosswise. Lace/nets are made by twisting or looping yarns. Braided is by creating interlacing three or more yarns. Bonded is made by permanetly fastening together two layers of fabric by lamination
