DUCK vs TWILL

The weave is the biggest difference between Duck and Twill.

 

Duck/Canvas

Duck is a regular weave of horizontal and vertical threads.  This  weave makes a smooth fabric texture.  Duck is woven with 2 yarns together in the warp (vertical) and 1 yarn in the weft (horizontal) which makes it durable.  Duck is a canvas type fabric and is used for work wear, shoes, home decor, slipcovers, bags, and more.

 

Twill/Denim

Twill is a diagonal weave that creates a ridged texture.  The ridges are generally little ridges, but this weave makes for a strong fabric.  Denim is a twill fabric.  Ever notice the ridged pattern in your jeans?  Twill is often used in applications where you want durability.  Twill is used for work clothes, jeans, jackets, upholstery, bags, and much more.
