Most of the silk scarves we sell on our site are made with mainly silk twill weave, unless stated otherwise. The weave refers to the way that the fibers of the silk are put together to make the garment.
A satin weave will give the fabric a shimmer appearance on the surface, but dull on the inside or back. A satin weave can make the scarf more slippery, giving it a beautiful draping effect.
A twill weave can be identified by the tiny diagonal lines that appear on the surface when looked at closely. This weave makes the fabric stronger, with a dull appearance. The twill weave is not as slippery and is more structured, making it easy to shape as desired. Soils and stains are also less noticeable on this type of weave.
