Transposed Twills in Fabric Weaving
The diagonal effect is broken by transposition of the original order of the threads are called Transposed Twills.
In the case of these twills, the diagonal effect is broken by transposition of the original order of the threads. This type of construction produces attractive designs. A number of methods can be adopted in the transposition of the regular twills. One of the commonly used methods is shown in figure
As shown in the figure, the transposed twill is constructed in three stages. In figure A the repeat size of the design is shown. The design adopted here is a base twill of 3/3 transposed on a repeat of 2. The repeat size is 6 ¥ 6. In the figure B is shown the base marks that are made on repeat size of 2 ¥ 2, the squares of which are thickly lined. In the figure C is shown the design of the transposed twill where the 3/3 twill is transposed in the thickly lined squares.
