Weaving


Weaving is a textile craft in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads, called the warp and the
filling or
weft (older woof), are interlaced to form a fabric or cloth. The warp threads run lengthways
on the piece of cloth, and the weft runs across from side to side, across the bolt of cloth


Weaving is done by intersecting the longitudinal threads, the warp, i.e. "that which is thrown
across", with the transverse threads, the
weft, i.e. "that which is woven".
