One of the plain weave variations, which is made by using: 1) heavy yarns in the warp or filling direction, or 2) a substantially higher number of yarns per inch in one direction than in the other, or 3) several yarns which are grouped together as one. Rib fabrics are characterized by having a slight ridge effect in one direction, usually the filling. Such fabrics could possibly have problems with yarn slippage, abrasion resistance, and tear strength. Examples include: broadcloth, poplin, taffeta, faille, shantung, and cord fabric.
