What is two fold?

Plaza Magazine UK & Europe - - MANUAL -

A com­mon term that oc­curs in shirt con­texts is “two fold” or “two ply”. This tech­nique in­volves the twist­ing to­gether of two cot­ton yarns be­fore they are wo­ven. The re­sult is a re­sis­tant fab­ric with a smoother feel and deeper lus­tre com­pared to cloth of sin­gle-stranded yarns. Now, this alone is not seen as a guar­an­tee of the qual­ity of a shirt’s fab­ric. Just as im­por­tant is the choice of cot­ton and weav­ing tech­niques.
