Broken Twill

Fade February Fact #7:

When Denim is woven into either a right hand twill or a left hand twill and sewn into jeans it has the tendency to twist in its respective direction.  A solution to this problem is the broken twill. As you can see in the picture, a broken twill is woven with 2 stitches to the right, and then 2 stitches to the left, resulting in a jean that will not have twisted seams.
