Weave: 2 x 2 Twill
Tow Size: 3K
2x2 Twill carbon, attractive pattern. Gives 3-dimensional/diagonal appearance. More easily drapable than plain fabric, but also more delicate. Commonly used in aftermarket parts where you see the "carbon fiber look" 2x2 twill weave is a two over two under weave pattern.
means basically nothing.
when your skinning, you really only care about it LOOKING like carbon fiber, therefore you could go with black fiberglass (in the 2x2 twill) it's way cheaper per yard, lighter wieght (to get coverage you'll use less.... strength to weight ratio still totally favors carbon fiber, but your not looking for added strength or lighter weight) and it doesn't fade or yellow like carbon fiber, thats important since your doing this for looks.
