|Warp Definition - Definitions for the Clothing & fabric Industry|
Warp are the lengthwise threads attached to a loom before weaving begins.
The weft is woven back and forth through the warp to make fabric. Warp means "that which is thrown across" (Old English wearp, from weorpan, to throw, cf. German werfen, Dutch werpen). Each individual warp thread in a fabric is called a warp end.
