Compound weave is characterised by diagonal line in the fabric which is created by the floats of the ends or picks. The simplest twill weave is two up one down (or one up two down) which repeats on three ends and three picks. In warp faced twill, the floats of ends predominate over that of picks. In contrast, the floats of picks predominate over that of ends in weft faced twill. In case of balanced twill, the floats of ends and picks are equal.
This is simple weaving pattern where the warp and weft yarns cross up and down alternatively. It is the simplest possible and most commonly used weave. It gives maximum number of interlacements in the fabric and therefore the fabric becomes very firm. As the yarns are having maximum possible interlacements, the crimp in the yarns is also higher as compared to other weaves.
Satin and sateen weaves are characterised by Only one binding point in each end and pick within the repeat and no continuous twill line. The weave has a smooth appearance. Satin weave is warp faced whereas sateen weave weft faced. The fabrics have very smooth and lustrous appearance which is created by the long floats of either ends or picks.
