The satin weave refers to the warp (or weft). The float is longer and the interlacing points are less. Although they form a diagonal line, they are not continuous, and the distance between them is regular and uniform. The fabric structure is called satin weave.


The satin weave has a separate spacing of individual tissue points on two adjacent warp yarns, which are independent and discontinuous, and are arranged in a certain order. There are at least five latitude and longitude lines in a complete organization, which can also be expressed in fractions. For example, 5/3 weft satin can be read as five three-floating satin. Unlike the twill weave, the molecules of the satin weave represent the latitude and longitude of a complete organization, and the denominator represents the number of fetuses. The appearance of the satin weave is different from that of the plain weave and the twill. The warp and weft are interlaced with a much lower number of times than the twill weave, and less than the plain weave, at two adjacent warp points of one weft. In the meantime, the weft yarn continuously floats on the top of several warp yarns, so that the long weft yarn is coated on the surface of the fabric, so that the fabric has soft texture, smooth and even surface, and luster.

The opposite side of the cross-satin satin has a long warp yarn floating on the surface. The general ratio is 5:3, so the reverse side is not as smooth as the front side, and the gloss is also worse.

If the front of the fabric is floated on the surface by a long warp yarn, the density is much larger than the weft density, and the ratio is usually 3:2. This fabric is also called straight satin.
