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
