What is twin?
The word twin has two different meanings: the first is one of the types of fabric, the second is a double hotel room. In this article we will tell in more detail what twin is in both senses of this term.
Twin like fabric
The word twin from English translates as twisted thread ("twine"). In the encyclopedic dictionary, twin is a low-grade woolen cotton fabric, one-color, made in the technique of twill weave.
In the Big Dictionary of D. Ushakov, the definition of twin is about the same, but it does not say that twin is necessarily low-grade fabric, moreover, it is noted that, as a rule, this material is used in the manufacture of outerwear and dresses.
In the New Dictionary of the Russian Language T. F. Efremova, twin is a smooth-colored cotton or half-woolen fabric.
Twin as a hotel room
The word twin is often used in travel companies to describe a double hotel room. At the same time, it is important to understand the differences between the double number and the twin number.Both suggest the presence of two places, but at the same time there can be one double bed or two single beds in a double room. In a twin room there will definitely be two single beds, and often a twin even consists of two rooms. Twin is a great budget accommodation option for two people who are not in a close relationship.
