According to Wikipedia,
The warp is the set of yarns or other elements stretched in place on a loom before the weft is introduced during the weaving process. It is regarded as the longitudinal set in a finished fabric with two or more sets of elements.
The term is also used for a set of yarns established before the interworking of weft yarns by some other method, such as finger manipulation, yielding wrapped or twined structures. Very simple looms use a spiral warp, in which the warp is made up of a single, very long yarn wound in a spiral pattern around a pair of sticks or beams.
Just like Weft, Warp is a basic component used in weaving to turn thread or yarn into fabric. The longitudinal warp yarns are held stationary in tension on a frame or loom. A pick is a single thread of the weft crossing the warp. Each individual warp thread in a fabric is called a warp end or end.
I am pleased to inform you that Nickzom Calculator is able to relieve you off the stress of calculating warp weight in kilogram. In a matter of seconds you can find the warp weight with the knowledge of these 3 parameters:
- Total Ends
- Total Length in m
- Warp Count

Weft is a basic component used in weaving to turn yard or loom into fabric. The transverse weft is drawn through and inserted over and under the warp. A single thread crossing the warp is called a pick.
According to Wikipedia,
Because the weft does not have to be stretched on a loom the way the warp is it can generally be less strong. It is usually made of spun fibre, originally wool, flax and cotton, today often of synthetic fiber such as nylon or rayon.
The weft is threaded through the warp using a “shuttle“, air jets or “rapier grippers”. Hand looms were the original weaver’s tool, with the shuttle being threaded through alternately raised warps by hand.
Nickzom Calculator calculates a bunch of calculations in Polymer and Textile Engineering and shows the steps (workings), formulas and answers. Today, I would showing you with pictures how The Calculator Encyclopedia can calculate the Weft Weight in Kilograms (Kg).
