Cavalry twill is a fabric that is traditionally made of wool. It is a firm, durable twill weave cloth that can be characterised by the pronounced diagonal wales. It is very hard-wearing and was used to make riding breeches, and raincoats. The structure of the twill weave means that the fabric drapes well and is more pliable. Lower qualities can be produced from less expensive fabric such as cotton or viscose, and this fabric is generally used to make sportswear. Cavalry Twill is genrally a light brown or khaki colour and it can be distinguished by the diagonal lines in the fabric, only going one way rather than the even sided twill fabrics such as Herringbone where the diagonal line go both ways.
