Denim Fabric (Jeans Fabric)
Denim is a cotton textile in twill weave. This weaving is recognizable by the diagonal line in a fabric. Unlike other twill fabrics, denim has an undyed weft yarn. This is in contrast to the dyed warp yarns, which are often dark blue or indigo. The combination of dark yarns and a light yarn in a twill weave results in denim.
