Could anybody please shed light on the construction of BGF's 1597 triple plain weave fiberglass?

It is a plain weave using three yarns bundled together rather than single yarns. It makes the fabric thicker, heavier, and cheaper per pound, but less conformable.

Thanks. I might be wrong but it looks more complicated than that. It would look just like a thicker plain weave if that were the case.

Three yarns in parallel has a flatter, ribbon shape than a single yarn at three times the weight. Similar in effect to the satin weaves.
