What is two-fold or two-ply cloth?


High-end fabrics used in seasonal shirts are produced from fine natural fibers in two-fold, super fine cotton like 100s,120s and 140s. Two-fold cotton has 2 yarns that have been twisted together tightly to form one yarn. The advantage over a single-yarn fabric (singles) is greater durability; weaker spots are reinforced and yarns are stronger and do not fray easily. Normally these types of fabrics are mentioned as 2/60s, 2/80s, 2/100s, 2/120s. Here 2 stands for two-ply or two-fold.
