Brush fill is twisted between two stem wires with a single wire on each side.   Brush fill is twisted between four stem wires with two stem wires on each side.   Brush fill is twisted between four stem wires with two layers of fill. Each layer is perpendicular to the other with a single stem wire in each quadrant.
