Oxford Weave

A variation of a plain weave where two warp ends are weaving as one in a plain weave, over and under each pick. Typically, the yarn size of the filling yarn is at least twice the size of the warp yarn. One exception is the pinpoint Oxford, which uses warp and filling yarns of the same size.
