The original method for making dotted swiss, swivel weave is sturdiest and costliest to create of all the dotted swiss types. Swivel weave, like lappet weave and clip dot, involves extra weft yarns interwoven with a ground fabric. The embroidery-like pattern made is often of a different color and heavier weight than the ground fabric, and small figures other than dots are found. The reverse will show clipped weft floats.
